The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is expected to reduce Thanksgiving travel and activities this year.

The Triple-A and TripAdvisor both predict a downturn in the number of those traveling to visit family this year due to the disease.

USA Today cites a Triple-A report that says travel will be down by ten-percent this Thanksgiving season compared to last year.

The report says according to TripAdvisor, over 20-percent of travelers will lodge in motels to enhance social distancing with family and friends.

Shorter turnaround times and limits to one overnight stay are likely this year for many who are COVID-19 conscious.

As is the case on most Thanksgiving holidays, this year a majority of travelers are expected to make their trips to Grandmother’s house on the road instead of in the air or on sea.
