Updated CDC guidance acknowledges coronavirus can spread through the air

My family is trying to decide what to do about Thanksgiving dinner, which is always a big deal for us. We even consulted my doctor about it, who thinks the risk is minimal if we practice social distancing.

One of my sons was asking about TG and Christmas. I didn't know what to tell him. He and his wife work outside their home, ditto my other son and DIL.

Our bubble with DD's family should be intact during those holidays so we'll be clear to spend them with her group. We're absolutely not favoring her - it's just that they're the only family where the adults work from home. Their kids (our only grands) have school online.

At least partly because they want to continue to be able to see us, DD & SIL declined in writing to send them to in-person classes until at least January (their schools are reopening Nov 1st if virus numbers stay down).

We are having two Thanksgivings with 6 people at each. One with my sister, nephew, wife & 2 kids, ages 4 months & 2 years. The second with me, my sister & 4 friends in their 80's (who we've been visiting every weekend since January). Guess we've been "lucky." The house is big enough so we don't have to sit close together.

Today, Dr. Fauci is recommending that families cancel TG and Xmas celebrations. That's pretty harsh, and I doubt that many people will comply. But I may have to make a last-minute decision as to whether to attend. (They are all coming to my son's house, and since they are all obviously much younger than I am, probably running minimal risk.)

We will have some sort of TG celebration with our daughter's family because we share a bubble with them.

Will probably see our sons and DILs for a lawn visit in late November. Masked & socially distanced, of course.

No idea how Christmas will work out. Still thinking about that one.

I respect your opinion.

My belief on the bolded part is no one is blessed (or cursed) in situations they're born into. I believe in pre destiny, of which, we make our choices shepherded by our spirit guides. Since our memories of past lives are wiped out, we have no remembrance of what we agreed to, in our next incarnation. IOW, there are no accidents, events in our lives are meant to happen to teach us lessons. Just MY belief that we can agree to disagree.
I agree with what you say. Each of us has a particular purpose in our lives. Sometimes, that purpose can only be achieved by living in the right environment. Some souls will have wanted to experience poverty and so chose to be born in a poor country.
 
Our counts continue to climb. Today is 300 more than our previous high, which was yesterday. The sad part, I don't think we are at the second wave yet. I feel this is still related to schools, particularly college kids... but it is spreading. The hospitals here are filling up and the trend is, kindly called in the news, an uptick. The facts are, more people being hospitalized, where the cases the previous few weeks were lighter cases. Now, the age in this area for hospitalizations are 30-50.... and more people going on ventilators.

I just stay home as much as possible. I have to go out this afternoon.... a pick up at Home Depot, they can bring it out to my car, thank you.

Should we tip people who bring our groceries or products to our cars? Or, is that a part of their services provided? Asking for my 330,708,540 friends.

@Rosemarie, I saw an interesting lecture about this theory on U Tube a few nights ago. Are you a fan of Dolores Cannon?

Er, Rosemarie, you are joking, aren't you? Please tell me you are joking!

Starsong, one advantage of living in southern CA is that you can have "lawn visits" at the end of November. I doubt that that would work here! šŸ™„

Yes, I have read several of her books. However, I must admit I am suspicious of her sources. Some of what she relates doesn't quite ring true. However, I was already convinced before I read her books.

I hadn't heard of her before the program. Some of it made a lot of sense but the presentation was so much self praise it detracted from the message. I'll look for some books. Thanks.

The only thing I can say is that we need to be very careful in not becoming complacent about social distancing and good hygiene habits.
Here is one possible solution - bad hygiene may lead to natural social distancing. If a person rarely showers, people will simply not want to be around him or her and 6 feet may not be enough, not to mention not wanting to be in the same room. :)

Seriously though, you do have a point. It seems that there are lulls locally in the discussion of COVID-19, and then I check the local news outlet online where the COVID-19 "score" (yes, like a sports game) is presented and the numbers are unsettling high for new cases, hospitalizations, and deaths for our state.

The discussion about what to do for the holidays would be quite perplexing for those who traditionally get together with family and friends. My wife and I typically just stay home in the quiet. However, I really don't know what other folks should do to make this season as memorable as past seasons. I suppose zoom and similar sites will be overloaded as people try to connect virtually.

That's my problem. I smell so delightful, people are always grabbing, hugging & kissing me. Especially women.
And my sparkling personality is also irresistible & only adds to the problem.

So if we read in the news that there is a sudden spike in COVID-19 cases among women in your locality, we know who to blame (clue...it isn't Trump, but instead has a more Clintonesque flavor). :)

LOL. Well, since I'm not sick, if cases spike in women, it ain't my fault. :ROFLMAO:

Yep. In a sense, that is what Clinton said too (I did not have sex with that woman). :)

I am glad that you are not sick. I have tested negative at the VA twice now over the span of 3 weeks or so, and I have not heard of any cases in our condo association either.

Have you read 'Yesterdays Children' by Jenny Cockrell? It was made into a film, but is based on fact.

I never heard of Jenny Cockell or this book, but I was interested enough to look her up. It reminded me (very much!) of a book and movie that were a big craze back in the 1950's. It was called The Search For Bridey Murphy, and is supposedly a true account of an American woman who is put under hypnosis and starts describing in great detail the life of an Irishwoman in the early 19th century. The American woman had never been to Ireland. The details aout her life seemed to be amazingly accurate.

After careful examination and analysis, it all turned out to be a hoax. Kind of a disappointment. I would have loved it to be true!

There you are....I didn't know that it turned out to be a hoax. However, there are plenty of books on the subject of regression. Some are so vivid that I can't believe there is not some basis in fact.
