Chalk it up to yet another canceled event. Children all over Los Angeles will be saddened by the news that there will be no trick or treating this Halloween.
The Los Angeles Times reports that house to house participation, parades and other events celebrating Halloween are taboo this year. This type of behavior is just too close for coronavirus comfot.
“Since some of the traditional ways in which this holiday is celebrated does not allow you to minimize contact with non-household members, it is important to plan early and identify safer alternatives,” the Department of Public Health said in a statement.
