What a year it has been for children, and adults, throughout the United States. With daycares, kindergartens and schools closed for the majority of the year, and slowly re-opening, it is not expected that many children will be out and about on Halloween to trick or treat. The fear of catching and transmitting the virus far exceeds the desire to be going from door to door.
Parents are trying to figure out how to make Halloween 2020 a fun event for the children, and many are coming up with all kinds of creative "non-touch," and social distancing ways, to celebrate this fun event. From Zoom costume parties, to hand sanitizer stations between homes, to even drone deliveries of goodies, the creativity of parents is endless.
In September the CDC issued its guidelines for Fall Holiday celebrations, including Halloween.
The American Academy of Pediatrics developed fun posters that serve as guidelines for parents to keep their children safe: Halloween & COVID-19: Have Fun While Staying Safe, provides tips and ideas on how to prevent Covid-19.
What a year 2020 has been. Hopefully 2021 will return to joyful celebrations with family and friends.
