Seems that everyone is looking forward to Thanksgiving this year –  time for feasting and celebration with friends and family. 

We here at CovX Labs want to make sure you, your friends and family stay safe during the pandemic holiday season!

  1. Get COVID-19 Tested Before Your Get Together

What better way to have a COVID-free Thanksgiving dinner than to get tested beforehand? It’s quick and easy to do before getting together with friends and family.

There are two primary ways that you or your family can get tested.

A rapid antigen test can give you results within 20 minutes and is a simple and affordable option if you want your results fast.

Alternatively, an RT-PCR test takes around 24 hours to process samples to give you results with even higher accuracy!

Either way, they are both great options for you if you want to ensure you are COVID-free.

  1. Black Friday Shopping? Wear That Mask!

As most of us know, with Thanksgiving comes a lot of shopping! When shopping for your Thanksgiving dinner, decorations for your house party, or even getting hard-to-miss deals on Friday – you want to make sure that you are staying safe when you are entering stores and shopping.

COVID-19 can spread from anywhere or from anyone – so to ensure your maximum safety, you want to make sure that you and anyone else tagging along with you is protected to minimize exposure.

This includes things like:

It’s basic essential precautions you can take that’ll help you and the people around you stay safe

  1. Stock Up On Those Rapid Antigen Tests

We’ve got some good news for you! Rapid antigen kits are as accessible as a quick walk to your local pharmacy. 

Since these kits are affordable, portable, and simple to use, you can stock them in your house for that upcoming Thanksgiving dinner.

Not only does it help determine if any COVID-like symptoms are something to be concerned about, it helps give peace of mind to everyone at dinner knowing that you are taking precautions to keep everyone safe from the virus.

  1. Wear Masks Indoors (Yeah...we know)

Let’s face it – wearing masks during family get-togethers is, well, less-than-ideal. While it may be tempting to not wear masks when you are family, there’s no guarantee that you will be safe from COVID-19 in the rare event of a ‘false negative’ result from a test.

Wearing masks indoors helps prevent and minimize the spread of the virus as the virus spreads much easier indoors.

Reducing the potential spread of COVID-19 is the best gift you can offer loved ones this Thanksgiving – whether it’s talking, eating, or socializing with your friends and family.

  1. Practice Social Distancing This Holiday

Finally! A reason to sit at the couch or in your favorite recliner this year!

Trying to maintain 6 feet from others can help minimize the spread of the virus with people.

Learning to stay safe this Thanksgiving holiday helps keep you and your family around you safe.

If you’re looking to get tested before that Thanksgiving get-together, you can always come down to CovX Labs for rapid antigen or PCR testing options.
