Traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating has been classified as a “higher-risk” activity. . The CDC also advises against using Halloween masks as face covering replacements. . A costume mask should not be used unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers the mouth and nose and doesn’t leave gaps around the face, CDC, via statement. The use of judgement-clouding alcohol and drugs are also in the category, as they can “increase risky behaviors.”.

The public agency suggests carving pumpkins with members of your household or organizing a virtual costume contest. . Another suggestion is to have a "scary movie night" with people in your household
