It Will Be Safe For Children To Trick-Or-Treat This Halloween

It’s time to start asking your kids what they want to be for Halloween. US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky made a TV appearance on Sunday (September 26th) and said children can safely trick-or-treat on Halloween. She said, “If you’re able to do so outdoors, absolutely.” She also added, “I wouldn’t necessarily go to a crowded Halloween party, but I think that we should be able to let our kids go trick-or-treating in small groups, and I hope that we can do that this year.” According to the CDC, 64.6 percent of people in the US over the age of 12 are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Kids under the age of 12 are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine– but that could change soon.
