Rhode Island Gatherings Now Limited To Single Household — Even for Thanksgiving

November 23, 2020

Rhode Island’s governor says nobody can come over your house who doesn’t already live there.

That includes Thanksgiving.

The state’s previous policy limited indoor gatherings to 10 people because of a recent spike in coronavirus numbers — as Massachusetts does currently.

The new policy in Rhode Island limits gatherings to the household where it’s at.

Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo, a Democrat, announced the new policy via Twitter on Thursday, November 19.

“Starting today, we’re lowering the social gathering limit to a single household,” she wrote. “This means you should not be spending time socially with anyone you don’t live with — this includes on Thanksgiving.”
