An estimated 50 million Americans were expected to travel for Thanksgiving, according to a November 12 forecast by AAA Travel

However, because of the nationwide surge in coronavirus cases and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) recommendation to not travel for the holidays, AAA anticipates at least a 10 percent drop in travel this year. That would be the largest one-year decline since the Great Recession in 2008.

For those who do choose to travel, AAA anticipates that the majority, 95 percent, will do so by road. However, automobile travel is projected to drop 4.3 percent, compared with 2019. Air travel will fare much worse, dropping nearly 50 percent, and travel by other methods, including buses, trains and cruises, is projected to decrease 76 percent.

Regardless of the mode of transportation, any travel poses a risk this year.

"Travel may increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19," the CDC warns on its website. "Postponing travel and staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others this year."
