The US is celebrating Thanksgiving at a time of widespread coronavirus restrictions and with the fallout of the presidential election continuing.
Many have travelled to see family members despite being discouraged to do so as virus cases continue to rise.
President Donald Trump is continuing to contest president-elect Joe Biden’s win in the election although a formal transition process has now been initiated.
This Thanksgiving — and in anticipation of all the Thanksgivings to come — let us dream again. Let us commit ourselves to thinking not only of ourselves but of others. pic.twitter.com/FujMmmykUPAdvertisement

As we head into this holiday week, please take every precaution you can to keep yourself, your family, and your community safe. Wear a mask, wash your hands, and practice social distancing. Coronavirus cases are spiking across the country so we must remain vigilant.
