Even with the limitations on gatherings for the holidays, people are still looking for ways to get together safely.
Joe Hynes, at Northeast Tent Productions in Stamford, says people are looking for tents as another way to celebrate Thanksgiving.
He says they're also looking for heaters to keep warm.
Hynes says he's been renting a lot of tents already since COVID-19 started.
A lot of them have been rented to schools and hospitals - and even some COVID-19 testing sites.
He says he's complying with all the state safety guidelines, and people are just looking for another way to celebrate the holiday.
Hynes says he usually slows down in the winter months, but he says with warmer weather predicted this winter one never knows.
