Outdoor trick-or-treating can be safe with precautions: Dr. Tam

COVID-19 won't spook away trick-or-treating if safety rules followed: health officers

If a zone is in the orange phase then they would not be trick or treating, but there would be other ways of celebrating Halloween.

Though they will make this October 31 a holiday like no other - and it will definitely be a lot quieter than Halloweens in years past.

Halloween this year is really only for the kids, namely, those who want to go trick-or-treating.

If you have COVID-19 or may have been exposed, stay home.

All gatherings, regardless of the space they're in, must be created to ensure that people from differing households maintain social distancing measures of 6-feet. Anyone handing out candy is asked to wear a face covering.

"We have to celebrate it with the other people who live in the same household as us".

In a statement, the City of Montreal told MTL Blog that "children will be able to go trick-or-treating, in Montreal as elsewhere in Quebec, in compliance with the health rules issued by public health".

The CDC says to not wear a costume mask over a protective cloth mask because it can be risky if the costume mask makes it hard to breathe.

In Canada as in the United States, Halloween brings armies of children dressed in spooky costumes out onto the streets in search of candy and maybe a fright or two. Instead, consider using a Halloween-themed cloth mask.

Doctors also recommend keeping a physical distance of at least six feet from people who are not in your immediate household, using hand sanitizer often, and waiting to eat candy until you are at home and can wash your hands with soap and water.

Yellow activities, or those with risk, include small-group gatherings outdoors, with participants socially distanced and wearing masks; outdoor mazes, with socially distanced and masked participants; and drive-thru trunk-or-treat events.

Decorate doors inside your house and let your little ones go trick-or-treating indoors.
