PROVIDENCE, RI — Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away, and while Gov. Gina Raimondo and health officials have already asked residents to avoid out-of-state travel and large gatherings with family and friends, further restrictions are expected in the coming week as the state tries to slow the spread of the coronavirus in the state.

On Thursday, Raimondo said she expects to discuss Thanksgiving at next week's news conference, also on Thursday due to the Veterans Day holiday.
