LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) —  Although this holiday requires minimal movement, aside from shoveling mash potatoes into your mouth, the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has released new COVID-19 guidelines for Thanksgiving.

The CDC says you should plan on low-risk activities like:

  • Host a small dinner with the people you live with.
  • Create and deliver (no-contact) dishes with nearby family and neighbors.
  • Plan a virtual dinner with your loved ones via Zoom.
  • Try to get your shopping done online rather than going to the store.
  • Watch sports events, parades, and movies at home.

However, the CDC says your family should AVOID high-risk activities like:

  • Shopping in crowded stores.
  • Attending a crowded sports event, parade, or large indoor gathering.
