Thanksgiving is around the corner, and across the country families are planning how to celebrate with their loved-ones in the midst of #COVID19. In South Dakota, we won’t stop or discourage you from thanking God and spending time together this Thanksgiving.Some states across the country are imposing restrictions on Thanksgiving celebrations. Some in the media are even looking ahead and planning to cancel Christmas. I’ll continue to encourage each and every one of you to exercise personal responsibility and make smart choices.As you dig in to enjoy that delicious turkey and stuffing, make sure that everyone in your household is practicing good hygiene. Wash your hands. If someone in your family is in the vulnerable population, take extra precautions to keep them safe.This year, my family will send up thanks for the years we’ve spent with each other and the years to come. We’ll also thank God that we get to live in the greatest nation in human history. Have a great Thanksgiving!
