With Halloween approaching, experts explain this year may be safe depending on where you live, but all trick-or-treaters going door-to-door should be cautious. An infectious disease specialist at St. Micheal’s Hospital in Toronto, Dr. Anna Banerji did not recommend trick-or-treating the previous year but told CTVNews.ca that this year is different depending on location.
Banerji explained “It’s safer for most people this year and right now the amount of COVID — depending on where you live — is lower,… I think it really depends on the numbers, For example, in Alberta, I don’t think trick-or-treating right now is the best idea, but versus a small town where there’s not a lot of COVID where people are vaccinated.”
Another infectious disease specialist at the Vancouver Infectious Disease Centre, Dr. Brian Conway agrees with Banjeri. He believes people residing in both Alberta and Saskatchewan should be more cautious about Halloween as those provinces have high case counts.
