Laura says the fact there are vaccines currently available means they should be able to have both the dine-in and delivery of meals on Thanksgiving Day.
You be the judge if you feel comfortable being around a number of people or not. If you don't feel well you are asked to stay home. Masks will be strongly encouraged when you are not engaged in eating at the Eagles.
