In addition, the Louisiana Department of Health says Thanksgiving did not contribute to an explosion of new Coronavirus cases, as some doctors feared. There is evidence people listened and altered their plans for the holiday. LDH says your Christmas needs to look like your Thanksgiving. The department says it’s still safest to stay home with immediate household members.
