Fox News – Dr. Anthony Fauci said Thursday that people will have to make “their individual choice” when it comes to how to go about celebrating Thanksgiving and seeing family.

He told Yahoo News on Thursday during a live Q&A.

It also suggests watching sports and parades from home rather than in person and having a virtual dinner.
