Vacationers at OIA proceed flying after CDC warnings
ORLANDO, Fla. – The Thanksgiving tour started at Orlando International Airport a day after the Center for Control and Prevention issued a new guideline on holiday trips.
With the outbreak of coronavirus on the rise, the country’s leading agency has urged Americans to abstain from sex with foreigners.

Tabitha James and her husband were one of thousands of people who boarded a plane in Orlando on Friday.
“We tested it before we left to see if we were OK, so we didn’t make anyone sick,” he said. “If I were sick I would be at home.”
James says the lawsuit is over but is planning to stay with his family on Thanksgiving, despite receiving a new warning from the CDC.
“I want my family,” he said. “We should just try to apply everything you have been taught. Stay away from people, wash your hands, put on your mask. That’s the best thing we can do. ”
As of Friday, December 1, officials at Orlando International Airport said they wanted to pick up more people since the outbreak began.
During the Thanksgiving trip, airport officials warned that the lines could be long, but not the way you remember them.
“Sometimes the line looks long because of the crowd, the extra space between the guests,” said Director of Customer Experience Brian Engle.
Travelers can also identify fewer passengers, as more TSA reports indicate that airport flights have dropped by 74% since May, and charges continue to rise nationwide.
“People kept it for three months but because of COVID-19, it sometimes lasts a week now,” Engle said. “They’ve been waiting so long to see how the numbers are.”
For anyone who chooses to join others on Thanksgiving, the CDC recommends wearing a mask when eating, staying five feet[5 m]apart and keeping windows open.
The day of thanksgiving at Orlando International Airport is said to be Sunday, November 29 with 44,347 passengers.
