trick or treat:

    Matthew Rozsa September 18, 2020 10:00PM (UTC) Trick-or-treating is a Halloween rite of passage for American children, and an event that kids (and some teens) look forward to for months. Now, with no signs of the pandemic slowing, parents and kids are wondering whether trick-or-treating can be done in a safe manner that prevents transmission of the novel coronavirus.

According to Jon Wilner of The Mercury News, Pac-12 athletic directors are targeting an Oct. 31 start date for the 2020 fall season. Of course, that’s...

    SAN ANTONIO – Halloween will be like no other in recent years due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Hershey’s is offering some tips for safe, socially distanced parties.

    There will be no door-to-door trick-or-treating in Springfield this Halloween. It was a difficult decision, said Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno, but amid the COVID-19 pandemic, crowded streets are a way for the virus to spread.  “We’re still feeling and defeating a pandemic right now,” Sarno said. Springfield isn't the first community to call of trick-or-treating, but it is one of the earlier decision-makers. Salem, a community where much of the economy is based on Halloween and spooky activities, decided in August to draw down on activities.  Springfield is not banning Halloween, however. There is still fun to be had. Instead of trick-or-treating, the city is encouraging families to have online parties and contests along with car parades.
