California’s Insane Thanksgiving Rules for Family Gatherings

Only a few households can gather to celebrate outdoors. Oh, and keep your mask on!

Here are just a few of the guidelines:

“All gatherings must include no more than three households, including hosts and guests, and must be held outdoors, lasting for two hours or less.”

“Gatherings that occur outdoors are significantly safer than indoor gatherings. All gatherings must be held outside. Attendees may go inside to use restrooms as long as the restrooms are frequently sanitized.”

“[Congregants] may remove their face coverings briefly to eat or drink as long as they stay at least 6 feet away from everyone outside their own household, and put their face covering back on as soon as they are done with the activity.”

“Face coverings can also be removed to meet urgent medical needs (for example, to use an asthma inhaler, take medication, or if feeling light-headed).”

“Singing, chanting, shouting, and physical exertion significantly increases the risk of COVID-19 transmission because these activities increase the release of respiratory droplets and fine aerosols into the air. Because of this, singing, chanting, and shouting are strongly discouraged.”
