Halloween and other celebrations are going to be affected by COVID-19. But far from being a terrifyingly fun party, this year perhaps only the most fearsome scenario remains, without all the fun.

What is Halloween without trick or treat? Residents of Los Angeles County are about to find out.

Halloween in Coronavirus times

For reasons related to coronavirus, the county Department of Public Health has banned door-to-door or car-to-car trick or treatment for Halloween, along with Halloween parties, carnivals, and haunted houses.

In the latest update of health orders for coronavirus, the Department of Public Health states that such activities pose too high a risk of COVID-19 spread.

“Since some traditional ways in which this holiday is celebrated do not minimize contact between people who are not members of the same household, it is important to plan ahead and identify safer alternatives,” can be read in the guide published on the agency’s website.

On Halloween, the following activities are prohibited:

– Door-to-door events of trick or deal or “car to car”, in which children collect sweets from the trunks of the houses and parked cars;
– Parties or meetings with persons outside the homes of residents;
– Carnivals, festivals, live entertainment, and “haunted house attractions”.

Then what can you do?

Depending on the county, online parties or meetings are allowed. Also contests through the net, such as carving pumpkins or costumes, as well as car parades and other activities such as drive-in.

The distribution of “candy bags” through the car may be permitted, but are limited to “commercially packaged non-perishable treats”, and recipients must remain in their vehicles.

Self-service movie nights are also accepted, along with “Halloween-themed meals at outdoor restaurants,” art installations, and house and courtyard decorations.

As always, people who participate in these events should wear masks, maintain social distance, and meet other health requirements, such as washing their hands frequently and avoiding confined spaces.
