In the past, Halloween safety meant everything from wearing reflective tape to avoid cars and sticking together with your group while trick-or-treating. This year, it's all about not spreading possible germs, especially when it comes to vulnerable neighbors.
Trick-or-treating is unfortuantely out as a result, but the CDC says we can host outdoor gatherings of small groups with just a few friends or relatives who remain at a distance. Masks are also encouraged, as usual. Meeting up with people who've avoided contact with others for 14 days prior is ideal. Don't share drinks or food, wash your hands and use hand sanitizer and definitely don't get close. You can still enjoy one another's costumes from six feet!
