Ok so, more bad COVID math and uncritical reception of "science" on the tl today: that COVID risk calculator map is interesting, but remember that due to politics, racism, economic policy, and American refusal to act in solidarity, COVID + COVID risk IS NOT evenly distributed.
And very specifically in relation to attending family Thanksgiving gatherings: if you are the type of person thinking it's a good idea to travel and/or visit with 10+ family members right now in the first place, you're probably exposing yourself way more than me to begin with.
Plus, we know that risk isn't evenly distributed due to racism (Black, Latinx, Filipino people more likely working in healthcare and other essential jobs) and classism (low-paid jobs don't offer paid sick leave, health insurance, and are the ones mostly classified as "essential")
So while this is maybe an interesting heuristic, it's also yet another demonstration of how statistics without context is bad math and bad policy!!!

Just don't go to a big Thanksgiving dinner. Do not travel. Do not see anyone you are not already seeing. Stay. Home.
