Yes! While we know many people are eager to spend more time outside of their homes and we have eased the restrictions for leaving campus, residents are encouraged to stay home if they feel more comfortable doing so. Residents may contact the front desk to arrange for help receiving meals and services from the safety of their homes.

CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING SAFELY
Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate family and friends and give thanks for all we have. This year is a bit different, though, and this year’s Thanksgiving won’t necessarily look the same as it has in past years.
With COVID-19 cases on the rise across the country, staying home is more important than ever. Postponing travel and celebrating with the people you live with is the best way to stay safe. Virtual gatherings are another way to connect with loved ones safely.
Even small gatherings can pose a risk. To minimize your chances of spreading illness, make sure to stay six feet apart from individuals not in your household, and be mindful of walking through areas where food is being prepared. If you can, dine outside for maximum airflow. You can also bring your own food and utensils to help prevent the potential spread of germs.
Communication is key—check in with your household and loved ones about their own comfort levels. This will help ensure you are all on the same page about safety precautions and the risks associated with travel, and it will enable you to make the most of the day—whether that takes the form of a virtual celebration or a socially distant one.
Gratitude is an essential part of Thanksgiving, and no matter what your holiday looks like this year, there are still many things to be grateful for, so celebrate safely!
