Survey of Adherence with COVID‐19 Prevention Behaviors During the 2020 Thanksgiving and Winter Holidays Among Members of the COVID‐19 Community Research Partnership

The manuscript describes details on adherence with recommended public health prevention behaviors among members of a COVID-19 CRP from the United States.  The assessment was done following the 2020 Thanksgiving and winter holiday (WH) seasons.  In this manuscript, a survey showed most people did not fully adhere to recommended public health safety behaviors when attending holiday gatherings. Mask wearing, reported by 37.3% at Thanksgiving and 41.9% during the WH, was more common among older participants, non-Hispanic Blacks, and Hispanics when gatherings included Non-Hispanic Males.  It remains unknown to what extent failure to observe these recommendations may have contributed to the COVID-19 surges observed following Thanksgiving and the winter holidays in the United States.
