CDC Director Weighs In On Trick-Or-Treating
Trick-or-treating was not recommended last year. Some still chose to take their kids out, but a lot of families decided to find other ways to celebrate. If you remember, the Minnesota Department of Health was suggesting alternate ways to have fun like virtual costume contests and in-home scavenger hunts for candy.
Fast forward a year and the holiday should look a lot different. The director of the CDC has weighed in on what kids and families can do and shouldn't do this year. Read her comments below.
Halloween should look much different this year.
Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control, was on the CBS show "Face the Nation" and was asked if kids are safe to go trick-or-treating this year. She said, "If you’re able to be outdoors, absolutely.”
Big crowds still not advised
CDC recommendations for a safe Halloween:
- Masks are still recommended.
- Hand sanitizer is still recommended.
