The House modified its format on Friday evening after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended holding a large dinner for incoming members of Congress — a move that swiftly triggered a wave of criticism as Democrats begin to urge Americans to cancel their traditional Thanksgiving plans.

“Our office strictly follows the guidance of the Office of Attending Physician, including for this dinner,” Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, announced Friday night.

“To be a further model for the nation, this event has been modified to allow Members-elect to pick up their meals to go in a socially-distanced manner,” he added:
