This story is not a trick, and it’s certainly no treat: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released guidelines for families wanting to celebrate Halloween late next month.
Those guidelines — which you can read here — discourage people from most of the fun activities associated with Halloween.
- No trick-or-treating
- No costume masks
- No indoor costume parties
- No haunted houses
The reason, of course, is the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDC says all of the activities listed above represent a high risk for exposure.
