HOUSTON (CW39) With Thanksgiving Day, just over a week away, people are getting their holiday food items together. And, even in the middle of this pandemic, many still plan to spend this day of giving thanks, with a number of family members. That’s why Harris County Public Health (HCPH) is encouraging people to get tested for Covid-19, before Thanksgiving Day.
HCPH recommends gatherings include 10 people or less, and that you gather outside, where there is better air flow and you can socially distance. An additional precaution is for each person in your group to get tested now. If everyone tests negative, quarantine until the event. But, If anyone tests positive, they should inform the groups and skip the gathering.
