With Thanksgiving around the corner, Toronto's top doctor is urging residents not to include anyone in their plans who doesn't live already in their household.

Dr. Eileen de Villa gave Torontonians her advice on the upcoming holiday on Monday afternoon.

Limit [Thanksgiving] to the people you live with.

"If you live alone, the safest option is to join with others virtually,” she continued.

If you're planning to have people over, Dr. de Villa is "very seriously asking you to rethink your plans." 

Mayor Tory suggested on Monday that if we comply for Thanksgiving, we may be rewarded with more normal celebrations come Christmas.

This advice comes after Premier Doug Ford said Thanksgiving is still on in Ontario, as long as you keep your gathering under 10 people.

Last month, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that it would be "all too likely that Canadians wouldn't be gathering for Thanksgiving this year," but that if we follow health guidelines, "we still have a shot at Christmas."
