Time to pick out the costumes and stock up on the candy, Halloween is just around the corner. Unlike last year where trick-or-treating was technically canceled, this year according to the nation’s top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, we have the go-ahead to celebrate Halloween. The go-ahead was given since many adults as well as children over the age of 12 are getting vaccinated, Dr.Fauci said trick-or-treating outdoors, where the risk for infection is lower, should be safe for young children.
Dr. Fauci stated: “I think that, particularly if you’re vaccinated, you can get out there and enjoy it…This is a time that children love. It’s a very important part of the year for children.”
