Being limited or isolated these last eight months has taken a toll on many Americans. So, the thought of forgoing one of America’s most cherished holidays and spending Thanksgiving alone simply is not an option. Family members need to see their loved ones, but it is crucial to be smart about how we go about celebrating. Traditions will most certainly have to be tweaked.
Keep the Gathering Small and Eat Outdoors, if Possible
This holiday, keep it small. If you typically gather with extended family or house-hop from grandma’s to Aunt Betty and Uncle Don’s, rethink those traditions. One way to celebrate together while keeping health and safety in mind is to host a backyard Thanksgiving barbeque. Make it fun and get a large screen and project the football game while you eat. Do a spin on the main dish and grill the turkey instead of roasting it. Go the extra mile and pull out all of the comfort food you know how to make. Many families have found a new appreciation for togetherness so make the event a little extra special for everyone through food.
Rethink Inviting Elderly or Immunocompromised People
Your Aunt Betty might make the best pumpkin pie, but it isn’t worth the taste if she has compromised health issues. Whether we are tired of it or not, we are still in the midst of a global pandemic and we have to consider the health and safety of that group of people. Instead of including them at your table, invite them to join you virtually over Zoom. Prepare a meal ahead of time and send it to their home so they can eat with you.
Driving is the Safest Travel Option
If you do decide to travel, your car offers the most safety over planes and trains. Planes have taken big steps to keep things sanitized, but if one person is infected and does not take precautions, then there is a good chance you will become infected. While trains have better spacing to social distance, they don’t have as good of airflow as planes. As you drive, make as few stops as you can. Bring hand sanitizer and consider bringing your own food and snacks for the trip.
Choose the Ultimate Reassurance
To make sure you and your passengers arrive safe and healthy to your destination, stop by your nearest dealership before the trip and ask for NuVinAir’s latest product, ReKlenz-X, which has received approval from the EPA as an eco-friendly disinfectant.
ReKlenz-X kills 99.9 percent of germs, bacteria, and viruses in a vehicle’s interior without compromising the integrity of the cabin. The product is on the EPA’s “List N,” which includes disinfectants for use to combat SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
To clean, the proprietary product uses an oxygen-enriched formula to quickly kills bacteria and viruses by destroying their cell walls through a process called oxidation. According to NuVinAir, ReKlenz-X contains no harsh chemicals, sticky residue, or dangerous volatile organic compounds. The result is a disinfected vehicle with no chemical smell.
ReKlenz-X is available in 32-ounce spray bottles through automotive dealerships, detail shops, rental-car companies, service centers, and vehicle fleets.
