Sorry, people of Chicago, your wonderful Mayor just cancelled your Thanksgiving. But, don’t complain, you did vote for her.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot issued a stay-at-home order Thursday, telling city residents to cancel their Thanksgiving plans.
The strict lockdown rules come as average daily cases of COVID-19 have more than tripled since last month.
Lightfoot’s “advisory,” which also limits social gatherings to 10 people or less, will remain in effect for 30 days or until a change in guidelines is developed.
“While this is tough — this whole year has been tough — you must cancel the normal Thanksgiving plans,” she warned.
“If we continue on the path we’re on and you, me and others don’t step up and do more … we could see at least a thousand more Chicagoans die,” Lightfoot added.
