CHICO, Calif. - For those of you who did travel or gather this holiday, there is a way to find out your risk level of encountering someone with COVID-19.

Thanksgiving Day: a time where families would normally gather and celebrate with one another.

After nearly nine months of socially distancing, are people still gathering for the holiday?

Jose Aguirre, a Chico resident who decided to stay home, said, “Just spending a little time with the family…a small family.”

But Manuel Huerta is traveled home for the weekend, saying, “We are going down to the Bay to go meet with some family. With this whole coronavirus thing, it’s kind of dangerous but we haven’t seen them in over a year and it’s time for Thanksgiving. You know, we are not going to do anything rowdy. We are thinking it’s better than staying here.”

More importantly, are people worried about spreading the virus?

Aguirre said, “As long as we take precaution, I think we’ll be alright.”

Huerta agreed and said, “It’s pretty dangerous but as long as you take precautions, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.”

If you’re hoping on planning an event for Christmas this year, you can use the COVID-19 Event Risk Assessment Planning Tool, created by Georgia Tech University.

All you have to do is click on the size of the event you’d like to have and hover over whatever county you’ll be in across the whole country.

For example, if you hosted an event of 15 people in Tehama County, there is a 32% chance that one of your guests would be COVID-19 positive.

But, if you hosted an event of 50 people, there is a 73% chance that someone attending the event would be infected with the virus, and could spread it to others.

So, when planning your next holiday get together, remember to wear a mask, distance and gather in smaller groups outdoors.

As expected, we had much quieter weather around northern California on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine, much weaker wind, and a wide range of temperatures. Thursday will be similar, but much more active weather is coming.
