Gov. Charlie Baker recently told Massachusetts residents that Thanksgiving needs to look different this year in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Gathering with family and friends for extended amounts of time is “likely the worst possible scenario for spreading the virus,” Baker said during a press conference last month. The state has released guidelines for safely celebrating Thanksgiving, which includes keeping gatherings small, following Massachusetts travel orders, wearing masks, social distancing, and self-quarantining for 14 days or obtaining a negative test result within 72 hours of spending the holiday with folks you don’t live with.

Did you change your Thanksgiving plans this year due to COVID-19? Will you travel somewhere? If so, where? Or will you host? If you are gathering with family or friends, how will your celebration be different than previous years?
