Health experts continue to urge against large gatherings this Thanksgiving.

If you are planning a get-together, here's some advice:

“Other things to keep in mind while you're at the gathering is to have a good ventilated area, make sure the windows are open if possible, making sure people are wearing masks when they're talking or just conversing. They can obviously have the masks off when they're eating but trying to keep that mask on as much as possible,” said Dr. Long Nguyen, ThedaCare Family Medicine Physician.

Experts say if you are having a gathering, you should quarantine for 14 days after.
