The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday recommended Americans against traveling for Thanksgiving to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Dr. Henry Walke, CDC's Covid-19 incident manager, said there is "no more important time than now for each and every American to redouble our efforts to watch our distance, wash our hands and, most importantly, wear a mask."
"CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving period," he said.
"For Americans who decide to travel, CDC recommends doing so as safely as possible by following the same recommendations for everyday living."
"We're alarmed," he said, adding that the country has seen an "exponential increase" in cases, hospitalizations and deaths recently.
