Many parents and children are wondering if they will be able to go trick-or-treating this year in Ontario. That question will be answered later this week at a news conference with Ontario’s top doctor. Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Kieran Moore spoke during a news conference on Tuesday which hinted at more information on the October holiday season.
The previous year, kids were urged to avoid trick-or-treating in certain COVID-19 hotspots. The hope was to curb the spread of the virus so the regions of Toronto, Peel, York, and Ottawa were urged to not trick-or-treat. During that time, Premier Doug Ford said “We’re trying to make it as safe and simple as possible, my friends, we all know this isn’t going to be a regular Halloween,… We just can’t have hundreds of kids showing up at your door if you live in a hotspot, especially in an apartment building.”
Families that resided outside of a hotspot, were told to trick-or-treat outdoors with members of their household. Masks should be work by both trick-or-treaters and those giving candy. Officials noted that a costume mask does not count as a proper mask to protect against COVID-19.
