Spread Out And Keep It Down! Government Rules For Thanksgiving Gatherings

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has issued rules and recommendations for Michigan residents who gather to celebrate Thanksgiving.

  • Get together outside whenever possible. You have up to 20 times higher risk of getting sick inside.
  • If you do get together inside, include no more than two households and 10 people.
  • Wash hands regularly and try not to share utensils.
  • Wear a mask. Take it off when you eat or drink, then put it back on.
  • Keep six feet apart as much as you can.
  • When possible, keep voices down; high volume can increase COVID transmission by 30 times.
