A real-time event risk assessment tool created by Georgia Tech shows the risk you run of catching COVID-19 if you’re considering gathering with a big group this Thanksgiving.

The assessment tool breaks down the risk county by county in every state across the U.S. The chance of infection is based on the number of people attending an event, an adjustable figure, and if at least one person present at the gathering is COVID-19 positive.

The following figures represent the risk of catching coronavirus at an event with 25 people in attendance. The risk of contracting the virus heightens as the number of people attending increases.

Mason County - 11%

Thurston County - 18%

Kitsap County - 13%
