Being Safe Around Halloween

Halloween is a very special time for children and many adults, but there are always precautions that should be taken around Halloween to make sure everyone has a safe time. Dr. Bill Walsh, a Chief Medical Officer with OSF Health Care says that while Halloween may look different this year, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the holiday without taking risks.



The Illinois Department of Public Health is advising that visitors of activities use hand sanitizer before handling any produce, wear face coverings, and observe social distancing.  The IDPH wants you to wear the right face coverings and a Halloween mask doesn’t do the trick.


Walsh says You can even hold a virtual Halloween party.


As always the CDC advises if you are sick of if there is a chance you have COVID to not participate in any in-person Halloween festivities.
