Chicago Cancels Thanksgiving; Like Chicago Is A Person


"Chicago issues stay-at-home advisory and tells residents to cancel traditional Thanksgiving celebrations"

The order, which begins Monday, extends through Thanksgiving festivities. Residents are "strongly advised" to not have guests in their homes outside of essential workers -- even family and close friends.

"Chicago has reached a critical point in the second surge of COVID-19, demanding that we undertake this multi-faceted and comprehensive effort to stop the virus in its tracks," said Mayor Lori Lightfoot in the release.
