CDC warns Americans not to go trick-or-treating this Halloween

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are warning against typical Halloween revelry such as costume parties and trick-or-treating to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“High risk activities” include crowded indoor parties, haunted houses, hayrides and tractor rides with people from outside one’s household, and door-to-door trick-or-treating, according to the CDC.

The order also recommends against “trunk-or-treating,” where treats are handed out in parking lots from the back of participants’ cars.

The CDC also warned against traveling to a rural fall festival “that is not in your community if you live in an area with community spread of COVID-19.”

Wearing costume masks may also pose a problem, with the CDC raising concerns that wearing a plastic mask over a coronavirus mask can make it difficult to breathe.
