Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot just wants residents to cancel Thanksgiving gatherings after imposing a new stay-at-home advisory. 

Starting next week, the mayor says Chicagoans should stay home unless they absolutely can't.

The advisory, which goes into effect Monday, also urges people to stop entertaining guests, including family, and to avoid nonessential travel.

Illinois is among several states setting new daily COVID-19 case records.
