How to Celebrate Halloween in a COVID Time
Local health and law enforcement officials give you tips for celebrating Halloween safely during the Coronavirus pandemic.
According to NewsWest 9, there is no need to cancel Halloween at your house, just be safe about celebrating is what health and law enforcement officials are saying.
"Although many traditional Halloween activities can be high risk for spreading the virus, there are still several safer alternative ways to still participate in Halloween," says Dr. Rohith Saravanan, Chief Medical Officer at ORMC.
If you want to pass out candy, officials recommend washing your hands before placing the candy in the bowl and then placing the bowl at the end of your driveway.
Other Halloween traditions can continue, like pumpkin carving, as long as the group is small.
Also wear a mask if your costume does not require one.
Just follow the same safety practices you have been practicing all year, and your Halloween will be a healthy and safe one.
