To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, public health officials are urging Americans to stay home for Thanksgiving, upending the traditions of families and friends in the short term but potentially preserving valued relationships for years to come.
At least one survey shows this recommendation may be having an effect. The New York Times reports 27 percent of Americans interviewed by the global data-and-survey firm Dynata plan to get together with people outside of their household, which implies that nearly three-fourths of respondents will remain in some type of protective bubble.
On Nov. 20-22, more than 3 million people went through U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) airport checkpoints – far less than the number of travelers on the weekend before Thanksgiving last year but still significant given the circumstances. Many more will be driving over the holiday weekend: AAA projects 47.8 million automobile travelers will account for 95 percent of all holiday travel.
