LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 26: The Broughton family prepares for their dinner prayers during a gathering on November 26, 2020 in Los Angeles, California. Families have adjusted plans under CDC guidelines. "Not many people made it to Thanksgiving this year. I respect the CDC guidelines, and we have been following them with our own family practices. All year we have been fighting, social distancing, wearing masks and isolating. I wanted my family to feel rewarded for their efforts and rejoice together during this Thanksgiving - to remember that we should be in Thanksgiving everyday," said Dr. Christopher Broughton. Due to the spike in COVID-19 cases, as of November 21, 2020, the state of California has required that all non-essential work and activities stop between 10PM and 5AM in counties across the state.

Many of us are planning our first holiday gatherings with family in two years. Or at least a more normal gathering. I for one am very happy to be celebrating inside this year instead of dining in the driveway. But with delta still a concern you may be wondering what is the covid risk of your holiday gathering.

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) created an easy to use online tool that allows people to assess the perceived chance of someone at their gathering having COVID-19. The tool takes into consideration the location and size of your gathering.

It’s called the COVID-19 Event Risk Assessment Planning Tool. The site has an interactive map that is broken down by county. Once the county is selected users can move a sliding range to change the number of guests and see how that impacts the risk of someone carrying Covid-19.
