Thanksgiving is just over one week away and as California’s coronavirus cases have doubled in the last ten days health officials are releasing gathering guidance to avoid another COVID-19 surge over the holidays.

Although there are no travel restrictions, Dr. Mark Ghaly and Governor Gavin Newsom strongly urge a travel advisory of cancelling non-essential out of state travel. If you do need to leave the state, it is recommended you self-quarantine for 14 days once you return to the state. Newsom asks everyone to stay with your immediate family and remain as local as possible.

Purple and red tiers are recommended to not gather indoors with other households. Orange and yellow tiers are recommended keep windows and doors open, wear a mask and remain six feet apart from others. No matter what tier, high-risk individuals should avoid gatherings and wear a surgical or N95 mask if they do attend gatherings.

Washington Post Travel Writer Shannon McMahon shares insight with Nikki Medoro in regards to avoiding crowded Thanksgiving flights, according to booking data.
