Why shouldn’t I go trick-or-treating this year?

[Dr. Vera Etches]

Thanks for your question!

This year, we’re asking you to celebrate Halloween differently.

Right now, there is still too much COVID-19 in our community, so going door-to-door would be considered a very high-risk activity. We want to make sure you and your friends stay safe this Halloween.

We are recommending you don’t go trick-or-treating this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun! One of my favourite ideas is dressing up and having a Halloween treat scavenger hunt around the yard or in your living space. My boys are looking forward to that.

You can find lots of other ideas on our website.

I encourage you to share your ideas on how you plan on celebrating a safer Halloween. Let us know on social media!

Happy Halloween!
