NEW YORK With the coronavirus surging out of control, nation's top Public Health agency pled with Americans on Thursday not to travel for Thanksgiving and not to spend the holiday with people from outside their household. The Thanksgiving warning from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention came as the White House coronavirus task force held a briefing for the first time in months and Vice President Mike Pence concluded it without responding to questions by reporters or urging Americans not to travel. Other members of the task force whose media briefings were daily fixture during the early days of the outbreak talked about progress being made in the development of the vaccine. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and BioNTech will seek emergency government approval for their coronavirus vaccine on Friday. And infection disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci seeks to reassure the public that the vaccine is safe while still encouraging Americans to wear masks. CDCs Thanksgiving warning was some of the firmest guidance yet from the government on curtailing traditional gatherings to fight outbreak. The CDC issued recommendations just one week before Thanksgiving, at a time when diagnosed infections, hospitalizations and deaths are skyrocketing across the country. In many areas, health care system is being squeezed by a combination of sick patients filling up beds and medical workers falling ill themselves. CDCs Dr. Erin Sauber-Schatz cite more than 1 million NEW cases in the US over the past week as reason for the new guidance. The safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is at home with people in your household, she say. If families do decide to include returning college students, military members or others for turkey and stuffing, CDC is recommending that hosts take added precautions: Gatherings should be outdoors if possible, with people keeping 6 feet apart and wearing masks and just one person serving food. Whether Americans heed warning is another matter. Deadly comeback by viruses have been blamed in part on pandemic fatigue, or people getting tired of masks and other precautions. And surges were seen last summer after Memorial Day and July Fourth, despite blunt warnings from health authorities. The United States has had more than 11 million diagnosed infections and over 250 000 deaths from coronavirus. CDC scientists believe that somewhere around 40 % of people who are infected do not have obvious symptoms but can still spread the virus. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday announced the imposition of an overnight curfew on most residents as the most populous state tries to head off a virus case surge that officials fear could tax the States Health care System. What officials call a limited stay-at-home order requires nonessential residents to stay home from 10 pm to 5 am starting Saturday. It lasts until Dec. 21 but could be extend. It covers 94 % of the States ' nearly 40 million residents.

Testing is not foolproof

Some people may opt to rely on testing to help provide reassurance that celebrations are virus-free, but that can be tricky, Althoff say. The best plan is to quarantine 14 days ahead of any Thanksgiving gathering, though that may not be feasible for many people, she say. Although testing can provide some information, timing is critical. Tests taken a few days before the celebration offer snapshot of information but not a full picture, she say. Someone who test negative on Monday may have been exposed to COVID-19 on Sunday, and the test would not pick up growing infection. Further, someone who has a negative test would need to be quarantine until the scheduled gathering in order to protect against other exposure. The point is that a negative test helps lower risk, but it doesn't make it zero risk, Althoff say. It's all about details and timing. Also, for those who don't have COVID-19 symptoms, it may be difficult to get the test in some parts of the country. So if testing is part of your holiday preparation plan, you may need to do some research to find a test site and schedule an appointment. Although worries that if people gather for Thanksgiving despite CDC recommendations, already stressed and overwhelmed medical systems and staff may see an increase in cases in days and weeks after the holiday. That's part that is very frightening, she say. The situation right now is very dynamic and moving in the wrong direction.
