L.A. County Cancels Halloween Trick Or Treating Due to COVID
There won’t be any Halloween tricks or treats this year – at least no door-to-door in Los Angeles – as it is now banned due to the coronavirus.
LA County health officials made it official, saying deception or treatment on the streets is prohibited – and ditto for “the trunk or treatment” of parked cars, which is one thing, apparently. Also nixed … house parties and live entertainment attractions (like haunted houses).
So here’s what’s left for people to do, legally … online meetings, costume contests, pumpkin carving parties and drive-thru events, movie events – it should all be at a distance. and only with immediate members of your household. So basically … none of the fun stuff.
It was only a matter of time before that call was made, and not much of a shock … considering the house parties. are still prohibited in the city. Having a bunch of people flocking together and hammering the sidewalk for candy wouldn’t fit Mayor Garcettianti-COVID policies.
That said, it’ll be interesting to see how many people actually dress this year … assuming these new guidelines are followed at a T (you know they won’t).
As we reported … Halloween Costume Auction in fact, I didn’t have such a hit this year before what could be the most celebrated holiday here in the United States. We spoke to different costume retailers and they told us that sales were almost back to normal since the spring.
Terrifying times await us indeed.
