Thanksgiving While Social Distancing
This year, Thanksgiving is going to be a bit different than usual, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the holiday doesn’t have to be called off. Virginia Premier has some tips to share on how to celebrate Thanksgiving while staying as safe as possible.
Keep it small
It’s natural to want to gather as many of your family and friends in one place to celebrate. But the more people there are in one place at one time, the easier it is for COVID-19 to spread.
The smaller you can keep your gathering, the safer you and everyone else can be. If possible, this year celebrate with just the folks in your household. Of course, there’s no danger in having people join you virtually for the holidays.
Safe connection tips
Some of you might still plan to travel for the holidays, or have friends travel to stay with you. Following these tips will help keep everyone safe:
- stay at least six feet away from anyone you don’t live with during the rest of the year
- wear a mask
- wash your hands often
- if you can, celebrate outdoors

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
The holidays are all about sticking together, even if the rules for being with one another are a bit different this year. No matter how you or your family decide to spend the holiday, we want to encourage you to be safe.
With a little extra attention, we can make sure this Thanksgiving remains a time to be thankful for one another, and for how we keep one another healthy, happy and safe.
Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy Holidays from Virginia Premier.
