COVID-19 :: The City and the Alexandria Health Department strongly urge those celebrating Thanksgiving to choose lower risk activities to reduce the likelihood of COVID-19 outbreaks, rather than the traditional indoor gatherings and traveling. The guidance from the City and AHD reflects Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations to minimize COVID-19 exposure and spread during Thanksgiving. Limit gatherings to members of the household or host virtual dinners with other loved ones, prepare family recipes and consider contactless delivery for loved ones nearby, watch sports and events at home and shop for the holidays online.
