    So then you normally always follow the current CDC guidance and take your own food to eat to your in-laws for Thanksgiving I take it ?

    I don’t eat the majority of the food. Only what we bring, so, the current guidelines is and has been our normal :).

    If we have to go this year, I certainly will use that as an excuse to bring a lot more of my own food :). It will be nice to not be hungry on thanksgiving.

    But I'm not really concerned about your mother-in-laws cooking. I'm just pointing out the ridiculous guidance that it's OK to eat food picked up or eaten at a restaurant, but it's not OK to eat food cooked at someone's house. Seems about as stupid as anything they have yet published and the bad news is that some governors are dumb enough to repeat it.

    I think I'll just go hunting Thanksgiving morning, like always. Probably drive to OKC to eat some Indian food at a restaurant later in the day. I'm pretty sure the chef doesn't wear gloves or wash his hands. Weeds out the weak patrons right quick.

    Trained and practicing are two different things. I worked HVAC and did some work for food places and you wouldn't want to eat there if you ever went back in the kitchen.

    All the food place I worked at were all sticklers for food safety. A number are not, usually mom and pop shops. look at the safety records.

    Indian food in okc, you are a glutton for punishment. Sheesh mahal (sp) is decent, the rest are horrible.

    I can see how it would cut down on some cross contamination issues. We will most likely be at home for the first time ever. That’s really the only “safe” way. Granted most people here think COVID isn’t a bid deal or it’s a hoax. So, best of luck to you all no matter what you decide to do or not do.

    I have worked in a couple of restaurants, and Id have to disagree with that. Some workers have very clean habits. Many do not.
