The beginning of fall marked another milestone for young people to look forward to: Halloween.
Dr. Janice Fitzgerald said while COVID-19 may look much different in Newfoundland and Labrador in five weeks, right now there are no plans to cancel door-to-door trick-or-treating this year.
Fitzgerald said government and public health are developing guidelines for Halloween festivities, and added they will be available online within the next week.
“With diligence this can be done safely,” she said.
She added anyone who is self-isolating should not go out this year, and should arrange for someone else to hand out Halloween snacks.
