CDC Discourages Traditional Trick or Treating
As the novel coronavirus continues to loom across the country and world, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made their official recommendation around celebration Halloween this year. In order to help curb the spread of COVID-19, the CDC is discouraging traditional trick-or-treating, as well as a few other traditional holiday events, for 2020. According to ABC, the CDC stated that "many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses."
In addition to door-to-door trick-or-treating, the national public health institute listed trunk-or-treat events with treats handed out to large groups from trunks of cars, indoor costume parties, indoor haunted houses, hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household, and attending fall festivals outside of your community as high-risk activities to avoid this Halloween season.
