WASHINGTON, D.C. (WLFI) - The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention has released its COVID-19 guidelines for Halloween and Thanksgiving celebrations. For Halloween, the federal agency says you should not take part in in-person Halloween festivities and is cautioning against trick-or-treating. Health officials have recommended lower-risk activities to do. Those include having a virtual Halloween costume contest, holding a movie night with people you live with, or having a candy-scavenger hunt in your home.
For Thanksgiving, the CDC is cautioning against traveling. Federal health officials say you should have a small dinner with people who live in your household. They also say you should prepare traditional recipes for family and neighbors, but try to deliver the food if possible.
