Hawaii one of Top 10 Safest States to spend Thanksgiving

COVID-19 is the biggest challenge for travel and tourism. rebuilding.travel  is an initiative adopted by industry and government leaders in 106 countries. eTurboNews: has taken the global lead.

Thanksgiving is usually a time for big family gatherings filled with food, celebrations and reflections on all that we have to be grateful for. In 2020, though, things will be different for many Americans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to minimize virus transmission and promote safety, families and friends may opt for smaller, separate dinners connected by video calls, whether by choice or because of state regulations. Football games might be postponed or played without fans and the Macy’s parade will be held virtually. Some Americans will proceed with celebrations as normal, though.

With safety being a chief concern this year, travel experts compared the 50 states across 10 key metrics to see which provide the safest conditions for the Thanksgiving holiday. Survey’s data set includes metrics examining how the state is handling the COVID-19 pandemic, such as positive tests and deaths per capita in the past week, as well as other indicators of general safety like the crime rate and the average number of DUI-related fatalities in November.
