CDC Advises Against "Traditional" Trick-Or-Treating This Year


DAMN YOU COVID!!!! The CDC is advising against traditional trick-or-treating this year amid the novel coronavirus.The recommendation came as part of a list of Halloween guidelines from the CDC that is broken down by level of risk. 

They also went on to say that traditional door to door trick-or-treating, trunk or treating, indoor parties and haunted houses are among the "riskiest" activities when it comes to preventing the spread of COVID-19.

The CDC does recommend safer activities like one-way trick-or-treating "where individually wrapped goodie bags are lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance (such as at the end of a driveway or at the edge of a yard)," small, outdoor and socially-distant costume parties, parades or Halloween movie nights and one-way, outdoor and socially-distant haunted forests or pumpkin patches.
