HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Connecticut ranks among the safest states in which to spend Thanksgiving, according to a study.

The personal finance website released on Wednesday its report on the Safest States to Spend Thanksgiving.

WalletHub said it looked at all 50 states in terms of positive COVID-19 tests and deaths per capita in the past week, as well as general safety such as crime rate and the average of DUI-related fatalities.

Here's how Connecticut's metrics contributed to its ranking:

  • 25th in COVID-19 positive tests in the past week per capita

  • 22nd in share of multigenerational households
  • 17th in share of offline homes
  • 4th in crime rate
  • 25th in DUI-fatalities in motor vehicle crashes around Thanksgiving

The top three safest states were Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire.
