The Office of the Chief Public Health Officer (OCPHO) is advising people to safely celebrate thanksgiving.

In a press release the OCPHO says anyone feeling unwell or who is self-isolating should not participate in a gathering.

Physical distancing is encouraged whenever possible.

The release recommends those hosting gatherings to keep a list of guests to make contact tracing easier.

One suggestion includes limiting the number of people you see two weeks before the gathering.

Current restrictions have a cap at 10 people allowed inside a home at a time, while 25 people are allowed in a public indoor space and 50 in an outdoor space.

The release also encouraged regular hand washing and sanitation.
