CDC Issues Strong Recommendation Against Holiday Travel r


The CDC is urging Americans not to travel for the Thanksgiving holidays. The move to limit travel is in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19. According to UPI, a "strong recommendation" was made as the agency published updated guidelines for holiday travel. The federal agency also issued guidance on gatherings during the holidays. The agency said the need for caution is in response to the "surge in new cases, hospitalizations and deaths". "We're alarmed about the exponential [increases]," said Dr. Henry Walke, incident manager at the CDC.
