Are you gathering with family/friends for Thanksgiving this year?

Poll: Thanksgiving dinner?

As Canadians approach the Thanksgiving long weekend — yet another holiday overshadowed by the COVID-19 pandemic — many have been faced with tough decisions over how to gather with friends and family.

In the Maritimes, New Brunswick’s government has essentially cancelled holiday gatherings. On Friday, “circuit breaker” restrictions will come into effect limiting indoor gatherings to a single household after rising COVID-19 cases put a strain on the province’s health-care system.

But in B.C., public health recommendations are more nuanced, with varying transmission and vaccination rates leading to a mixed bag of risk.

Curtailing celebrations largely depends on where you live and if you are fully vaccinated. There are currently no public health orders restricting people from gathering at home in Island Health and Vancouver Coastal Health, which includes much of Metro Vancouver.

All residents of Interior Health are limited to one household plus five visitors or one other household. That goes for vacation rentals as well.

Outdoor personal gatherings, like a backyard barbecue, should have no more than 50 people attending.
