Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is asking all residents to cancel Thanksgiving plans and stay at home unless they need to go to work or school or carry out essential tasks.

CNBC reports:

Chicago said it was issuing the 30-day stay-at-home advisory, asking people to refrain from traveling, having guests in their home or leaving for non-essential business "in response to the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the city."

"This is serious life and death," Lightfoot said during a press conference discussing the state-at-home advisory, adding that the city is "doing what is necessary" to slow the spread of the virus. "We are sounding the alarm that we are at this inflection point where we have to do more than we've already done."
