Thanksgiving Day is coming up. What are your plans? While many are planning on holding scaled-back celebrations – others are pulling back even more.
Jon Gonzalez, who manages the Hegedorn’s store in Webster, told News10NBC that while the meals might be smaller – they won’t be that different.
It means grocery stores are preparing for a busy two week stretch leading up to Thanksgiving.
“People are still going to cook Thanksgiving food. I mean they’re not likely to change to pizza, or something else so you’re still going to be cooking. It just might be smaller meals,” Gonzalez told them.
Monroe County officials are urging people to celebrate Thanksgiving with those who live under the same roof to contain growing numbers of COVID-19 cases.
“You have Thanksgiving dinner with seven people, you can still be infected,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said, speaking to the risk of infection at even the smallest of gatherings.
Either way, families are likely to need to modify plans for the holiday season – with growing infection rates, and evolving restrictions on travel.
