These COVID-19 Thanksgiving Rules In BC Will Help Keep You & Your Family Safe

The B.C.government is advising people how to celebrate Thanksgiving this year with COVID-19 rules in mind.

This comes after the increased restriction in schools and a recent announcement of mandatory vaccines for public service workers.

A statement from Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.'s provincial health officer, and Stephen Brown, deputy minister of health, said: "This year, make your celebrations large in thanks but small in size. While many of us would often travel to friends and family to spend time together, now is the time to stay closer to home and have a smaller gathering instead."

The statement advises people to get together with your "safe six" for the long weekend, and to sit people far apart from one another.

In a press conference, Dr. Henry also said to "limit your time inside."
