- Governor Newsom issued a limited stay at home order yesterday for the state of California. Non-essential businesses and gatherings must stop from 10pm-5am in counties in the purple tier. This will take effect at 10pm on Saturday and remain for one month. Take-out food service also is still permitted after 10 p.m. These new orders last through Dec. 21
- The CDC now says that you shouldn’t travel for Thanksgiving. They issued a statement saying, "Postponing travel and staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others this year." They also gave a long checklist of questions to consider in case you are planning to travel for the holiday.
- Are you, someone in your household, or someone you will be visiting at increased risk for getting very sick from COVID-19?
- Are cases high or increasing in your community or your destination?
- Are hospitals in your community or your destination overwhelmed with patients who have COVID-19?
- Does your home or destination have requirements or restrictions for travelers?
- During the 14 days before your travel, have you or those you are visiting had close contact with people they don’t live with?
- Do your plans include traveling by bus, train or air which might make staying 6 feet apart difficult?
- Are you traveling with people who don’t live with you?
- The CDC also predicts that the U.S. death toll could go above 300,000 before Christmas.
- And even though, health experts are urging Americans to have smaller gatherings for Thanksgiving, 38% of people say they still plan to attend a large gathering. 38% will spend the day with 10 or more people and 27% say they don't plan on social distancing at all. Also, 33% say they will not ask guests to wear masks and, 20% say they won't even turn away guests who are exhibiting coronavirus symptoms.
- There is a new trend that people are doing during this pandemic. At the beginning of this year, everyone was doomscrolling. Doomscrolling is the act of consuming an endless procession of negative online news, to the detriment of the scroller's mental wellness. Well now the new trend is Zillow Surfing. It’s when people scroll through Zillow’s real estate listings and dream about what it would be like to live somewhere else – whether a different neighborhood, state, or a dream location like a beach house, mountain retreat or cabin by a lake.
- The San Diego Bay Parade of Lights has been canceled due to the surge in coronavirus cases. Approximately 80 boats were scheduled to participate in the event that was scheduled to take place on December 13th and December 20th. This would’ve been the 49th annual.
- Popeyes is Selling a Thanksgiving Chicken Feast just in case you don’t feel like making a turkey this year. Popeys is offering a "Churkey" meal with chicken as the featured food instead of turkey. The meal comes with eight pieces of Popeye's chicken, a large side, and four biscuits.
- IF YOU DIDN'T GET THAT STIMULUS CHECK… About nine million Americans are entitled to a $1,200 stimulus check from the U.S. government but didn't get one. They have until 3 P.M. tomorrow (Saturday) to register for their Economic Impact Payment, good for $1,200 plus $500 for each child. The people left out of the mass mailing generally don't file tax returns because their income is too low for them to owe anything. Many are senior citizens or college students. The IRS has a form online to register for payment.
