Thanksgiving: 35% of US Parents Want to Gather Despite Covid-19 Risks

The news comes as a third of parents who responded to a recent survey said they plan to see their families in person this year despite the risk of COVID-19

Researchers said that staff with antibodies were also less likely to test positive for COVID-19 without symptoms, with 76 without antibodies testing positive, compared to only three with antibodies. 'They naturally gravitated to the living room.

Chairing a high-level meeting in Islamabad yesterday to review the overall situation of the pandemic in the country, the prime minister had directed to take all possible measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and to protect the lives of common people.

Alexa, who works for the city of Arlington's communications department, further expressed the family's regret to The Washington Post on Sunday.

To keep children and guests safe, 88 percent of parents said they meant to ask a relative to stay away if they're showing any COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to the virus, while 64% percent said they plan to not invite those who haven't taken virus precautions.

'When we took my mom to the hospital, our hearts broke.

Alexa concluded the video with a moving call to action: 'Please don't be like my family and ignore the CDC guidelines. "By staying apart, we can fight this virus together".


That means out of the more than 14,000 tests conducted around 2,000 had people tested positive for the virus. "We're not unlike a lot of families".

Alexa said she hopes the PSA will resonate with other families and discourage them from holding reckless gatherings for Thanksgiving this week and Christmas next month. Unfortunately, that's not enough.

Another survey of parents nationwide found almost a third say the benefits of gathering with extended family for the holidays are worth the risk of spreading or getting the coronavirus. "Find ways to gather virtually and safely".

'Modifying the way we celebrate holidays this year can guarantee us many more holidays in the future'. This comes from a new national poll by C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

That trend is expected to worsen as the holiday season kicks off this week with Thanksgiving. Over the past few weeks, many states across the country announced stricter travel and gathering restrictions, as Business Insider's Yelena Dzhanova reported, and some governors have changed course from their original stance to enforce new mask mandates.
