According to AAA Travel, Thanksgiving will be on the lighter side when it comes to the typical number of travelers on U.S. roads and airports.

AAA reports the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including health concerns and high unemployment, are impacting Americans' decisions to travel for the 2020 Thanksgiving holiday. With health and government officials stressing that staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from getting sick, AAA anticipates at least a 10% drop in travel - the largest one-year decrease since the Great Recession in 2008.

Based on mid-October forecast models, AAA would have expected up to 50 million Americans to travel for Thanksgiving - a drop from 55 million in 2019. However, as the holiday approaches and Americans monitor the public health landscape, including rising COVID-19 positive case numbers, renewed quarantine restrictions and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) travel health notices, AAA expects the actual number of holiday travelers will be even lower.
