Poll: 41% say they will gather with family, friends this Thanksgiving

A new Siena College poll shows that two-thirds of New Yorkers have changed their plans for Thanksgiving due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

It’s been nearly a year since the virus first made headlines as it raged in Asia, then Europe. Now, a vast majority of the U.S. – including Upstate New York is experiencing its second true wave of the virus.


The toll? People are admittedly less excited about the holiday season this year.

It showed that 59% are somewhat or very excited about the holiday season, compared to 71% in 2019.

How about Thanksgiving gatherings? The data shows that only 14% of people plan to travel for the holiday. Around 41% say they will gather with friends or family. While 52% say they will skip the gathering.
