Yet another tradition ripped out of our yearning hands?! That seems to be the recommendation.
Trick-or-treating on Halloween this year has beendeemed unsafeby the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The CDC has released its first COVID-19 holiday guidance, urging people to avoid traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating to prevent community transmission of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
In the guidance, the CDC lists trick-or-treating as a high-risk Halloween activity. Crowded costume parties held indoors are also considered high risk, as is going to a haunted house "where people may be crowded together and screaming," in addition to going on hayrides or tractor rides.
