Trick-or-treating, costume masks and Halloween parties discouraged by CDC this year

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued its first guidance for the holidays, including Halloween, amid the raging coronavirus pandemic in a new posting on its website Monday night. Door-to-door trick-or-treating and costume masks and parties are discouraged this year due to the pandemic, the CDC said.”Many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses,” the agency said in its posting. “There are several safer, alternative ways to participate in Halloween.”
The new guidance lists “low-risk, moderate and higher risk activities” for celebrating All Hallow’s Eve.
