A fresh wave of COVID-19 infections in Minnesota is sending record numbers of patients to the hospital as families are finalizing their plans for Thanksgiving gatherings.

With the holiday fast approaching, the escalating COVID-19 crisis has families and medical experts debating the merits of different strategies - including testing, isolation and abstaining from gatherings - to make Thanksgiving and other upcoming holidays safer.

On Sunday, the Minnesota Department of Health added 7,559 cases of COVID-19, bringing the state's overall tally of cases to more than 223,500. About 12% of the 63,600 tests reported Sunday were positive.
