“This is not the year to squeeze everyone you know around the same table.” So said Trish Tilley, deputy director for the state Division of Public Health, updating the Governor’s Economic Reopening Task Force on Thursday. Close contact with someone infected in 10 minutes can cause the spread of COVID-19 and/or prompt a 14-day quarantine, she said. While the state is not going to mandate how people spend their Thanksgiving, she urged all to keep gatherings small and pay attention to the travel guidance. Similarly, a pre-holiday letter to community members posted on the SAU 9 website said: “The CDC and NH DHHS recommend limiting holiday gatherings to members of your immediate household. If you are planning holiday celebrations, please consider all participants’ travel exposure as well as the size of your gathering(s)."
