Some traditional activities, including collecting sweets, are considered “high-risk” activities.
The tradition of collecting treats for Halloween may become another victim of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Federal Centers for disease control and prevention issued recommendations that the practice of going from house to house to beg for sweets on October 31 is a “high-risk” activity and should therefore be avoided.
This category referred to the crowded costumed party, the organization “haunted house,” and riding the wagon with hay.
At the same time, the Agency has proposed alternatives to moderate and slight risk.
So, small costume parties in the open air, visiting pumpkin fields, or “haunted forests” are associated with moderate risk.
