SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – We’re hearing from local families after top health officials said we can feel safe trick-or-treating outdoors this year for Halloween.
This comes as COVID-19 cases in the country continue to decline.
Dr. Anthony Fauci said people who want to enjoy the holiday should plan on still getting vaccinated against COVID-19 for extra protection.
“Avarie is going to be Sailor Moon and her little sister is going to be Luna. I think we are going to keep it local and in our neighborhood; try to be safe but definitely want her to enjoy it”, Athena Fleury, a parent from South Hadley told 22News.
CDC officials are also saying trick-or-treating will be safe for kids, but people should avoid crowded Halloween parties this year.
We have their guidelines on how to celebrate the holidays this year on our website.
