If people follow through with their reported plans to hold gatherings on Thanksgiving, Vermont could face 3,200 to 3,800 new infections from those meetings alone, officials said at a press conference Tuesday.

Those new infections would effectively double the total number of infections in Vermont, state data shows, as well as cause 40 to 50 new hospitalizations. Those numbers are based on a national survey that revealed more than a third of Americans plan to hold multi-household gatherings this holiday.
