If you’re wondering how to have a Covid-19-safe Thanksgiving holiday, you might wish to consider the example of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert and a voice of reason during the pandemic.

Instead, he will be following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,which told Americans “is to celebrate only with people in your own household.”

“Traditional Thanksgiving gatherings with family and friends are fun but can increase the chances of getting or spreading Covid-19 or the flu,” the CDC said.

Dr. Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has this advice for individuals who are contemplating visiting family members outside of their immediate household, namely to make a “risk-based assessment” that includes questions such as whether those traveling will be around elderly or vulnerable people and whether it’s possible to avoid the hazards of a crowded airport.

“The risk of not traveling is less than the risk of traveling,” Dr. Fauci told the newspaper USA Today’s Editorial Board on Wednesday.

“Traditional Thanksgiving gatherings with family and friends are fun but can increase the chances of getting or spreading Covid-19 or the flu,” the CDC said.

The good doctor, incidentally, isn’t going anywhere this Thanksgiving nor are his daughters coming home for the holidays.
