Opinions on Thanksgiving trips during COVID-19 in the U.S. 2020, by age

Travel became increasingly difficult across the world in 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As a result, some adults in the United States opted out of traveling for Thanksgiving. During a November 2020 survey, just over six in 10 respondents aged 45 to 54 years old believed that traveling during this time was not worth the risk. Comparatively, 27 percent of respondents aged 25 to 34 years believed that, despite the risk, it was worth traveling to spend time with family.
