Americans should avoid travel for Thanksgiving, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended Thursday. It was a last-minute attempt by the nation's leading public health agency to curb what's sure to be yet another dangerous spike in Covid-19 cases if families gather next week. It's a recommendation for the American public to consider," Dr. Henry Walke, the CDC's Covid-19 incident manager, said on the call. For Americans who do choose to travel, the CDC advised doing so as safely as possible, by following the same everyday recommendations from the agency, Walke said. Also Thursday, three major medical organizations published an open letter to Americans, citing the recent surge in Covid-19 cases to urge precautions for the holidays.
