A green light for any vaccine would come as welcome news to Americans, who political leaders have clamped under increasingly aggressive measures to curtail the spread of the virus. But the ruling could drive legal challenges against similar limits placed on houses of worship in other states, including California. “Remember, skip the crowds and shop from home this Black Friday,” Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear, a first-term Democrat, wrote on Twitter. Some politicians and health experts feared Americans traveling for Thanksgiving could spread the contagion. Many heeded advice to stay home on Thursday but others chose to travel, saying they were willing to risk illness to see family.

That is likely to increase as people who mingled with relatives and friends over Thanksgiving gradually get sick, health experts say. Some abided by the public health guidance, spending their Thanksgiving on Thursday seeing their family over video calls. However, the ruling could have broader implications for houses of worship appealing capacity restrictions elsewhere. Earlier this week, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said the latest COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings in the nation’s capital also applied to indoor religious services, reducing capacity from 100 people to 50 people, with a maximum 50%. It was not immediately clear if the curbs would be challenged following the Supreme Court ruling.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Pandemic-weary Americans entered the holiday season on Friday under strong pressure from political leaders and health officials to stay home, avoid most gatherings and curtail Christmas shopping as the coronavirus surged nationwide. REUTERS/Lucy NicholsonOne day after the nation celebrated a muted Thanksgiving, malls and retailers imposing strict COVID-19 rules saw fewer Americans in stores for the traditional Black Friday start of the holiday shopping season. Some politicians and health experts have said that Americans traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday could spread the contagion even faster and push the already strained healthcare system to the brink. Many Americans heeded the advice to stay home for Thanksgiving on Thursday. Nearly 6 million Americans traveled by air from Friday to Wednesday, it said, a number that is however less than half that of the same period last year.

Despite warnings from public health officials, more people in the U.S. boarded planes on the day before Thanksgiving than any day since March, part of a broader surge in travel that comes amid a significant surge of Covid-19 cases. Wednesday’s figure is less than half as many of the 2.6 million who traveled the day before Thanksgiving in 2019. More than 1.2 million people in the U.S. contracted Covid-19 in the week leading up to Thanksgiving, close to double the 635,000-plus new cases three weeks before that. The 1.1 million travelers on Wednesday was the most passengers screened by the TSA since March 16, when 1.25 million passengers crossed its checkpoints. Similarly, the 6.8 million travelers in the week leading up to Thanksgiving were the most in any seven-day span since March 14 to March 20.

Oil prices were mixed on Friday in quiet trade due to the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, with West Texas Intermediate (WTI) dropping more than 1% amid concerns about oversupply and doubts about a vaccine to end the coronavirus pandemic. But questions have been raised over the so-called "vaccine for the world" as several scientists have sounded doubts over how robust the results of the trials were. "It seems some profit taking is finally kicking in ... as we ease into the end of the week," Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at OANDA. Still, "with WTI holding above $45 and Brent having touched $49, it seems crude is through the worst of its post-summer troubles," he said. But rising Libyan output is contributing to concerns about oversupply in the market as many people are ignoring lockdown advice and travelling.

Flyers returning to the skies for the upcoming holiday season will be met with an entirely new travel experience. The upcoming holiday travel season will likely see an influx of travelers taking to the skies, many for the first time since the pandemic impacted travel in March. The peak travel season for Thanksgiving and Christmas travel should be no different as historically among the busiest travel times of the year. Air travel rating firm Skytrax has also recently started rating airports based on their COVID-19 preparedness that passengers can use as a resource.
