(RepublicanPress.org) – California’s Department of Health unleashed repressive new health restrictions for private gatherings during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Justified as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the new policy all but destroys any chance of enjoying the holiday.
For instance, the restrictions bar gatherings of individuals amounting to more than three households. Additionally, families must host all Thanksgiving celebrations outdoors, cannot meet for longer than two hours, and attendees should wear masks at all times unless eating.
Former Fox News anchor and NBC host Megyn Kelly weighed in on the restrictions on Twitter. Blaming California’s Democratic governor Gavin Newsom for them, she called the rules Newsom’s “Thanksgiving insanity.”
CA Gov’s Thxgiving insanity:
-Must be held *OUTSIDE*;
-Guests may use bathrm inside if sanitized;
-Masks on while not eating;
-Singing “strongly discouraged;”
-Max of two hours together;
-6 feet *mandated* in all directions b/twn all at table & otherwise. https://t.co/wPpOBgSctN

With a reported economy of $3.1 trillion in 2019, California has the fifth-largest economy globally, representing roughly 15% of the United States economy. Maybe it’s time for Gov. Newsom to heed the advice of President Donald Trump and reopen the state’s economy. Thanksgiving would be the perfect time to boost both the state’s economy and its morale.
