LA County Cancels Door-To-Door Trick Or Treating This Halloween


Trick-or-treating, haunted houses and Halloween parades have been cancelled under new Los Angeles County health guidelines.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said in its recently released guidelines:

“Door-to-door trick-or-treating is not allowed because it can be very difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors especially in neighborhoods that are popular with trick or treaters. Trunk-or-treating’ events where children go from car to car instead of door to door to receive treats are also not allowed.”

Trick-or-treating won’t be allowed “because it can be very difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors,” health officials said.

Gatherings or parties with non-household members are not permitted, even if held outdoors, and neither are carnivals, festivals, live entertainment or haunted house attractions.

Looks like we'll have to wait until 2021 for Halloween fun!
