Is Dr. Fauci Canceling Thanksgiving?


Dr. Anthony Fauci is not having Thanksgiving dinner with his family this year. However, contrary to media reports, the 79-year old scientist is not "canceling Thanksgiving." Fauci said his decision not to have Thanksgiving is not a mandate against the gathering. "That doesn't mean everybody should be calling Thanksgiving off." He stated that many should consider it. Fauci and the CDC's Dr. Robert Redfield have already warned small gatherings are driving an uptick in coronavirus cases around the country. "That's the exact scenario that you're going to see in Thanksgiving," he said Ultimately, people have to weigh the risks of coming together for Thanksgiving this year for themselves.
