CORS error on localhost

Hi thanks for reading.

I’m receiving a CORS error when fetching my Netlify functions from localhost:8888
(I installed Netlify CLI and ran netlify dev and then saw the CORS error in the web browser’s Network tab).

To fix this, should I add the header “Access-Control-Allow-Origin: http://localhost:8888” ? That doesn’t seem safe.

If not, how do we avoid CORS error when developing Netlify Functions locally?

My Netlify project is just vanilla JS and deploys from GitHub.

Thank you.
