The second Thanksgiving of the COVID-19 pandemic comes as a resurgent virus has pushed new infections in the U.S. to 95,000 daily and caused alarming increases at hospitals in Michigan, Minnesota, Colorado and Arizona.

American families are facing dilemmas over gatherings that have become burdened with the same political and coronavirus debates consuming other arenas.
