Due to the increasing number of covid cases across the US, the CDC has recommended that people celebrate the holiday with people in their own households. This means, the best advice is to forgo both traveling and gathering extended families and friends. This is a tough call for a lot of people to make, so the CDC also compiled Guidelines for a Safe Thanksgiving.

Of course, here at HRN we’re thinking a lot about how covid precautions are going to change how we shop, cook, and enjoy our Thanksgiving dinners. Kat Johnson shares advice on how to make this holiday as stress-free as possible, while keeping safety and health front of mind. She also calls up Atlanta-based chef and restaurateur, Chris Hall, to learn how his restaurants are working to meet the needs of their customers this Thanksgiving.
