- Stay Safe While Celebrating Thanksgiving: COVID-19 cases continue to increase rapidly across the United States. The Loudoun County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advise that the safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving is to celebrate at home with the people you live with. Gatherings with family and friends who do not live with you can increase the chances of getting or spreading COVID-19 or the flu. The CDC strongly discourages travel this Thanksgiving weekend.
