          Halloween to humans is very thrilling. Having all the wonderful candy,  trick or treating to each house, and just having a good time on a chilly night. But due to COVID-19, sites have been saying that there isn’t going to be a Halloween this year.


          Websites are filling all non-acceptable information about how Halloween is going to be this year. Public Health of LA County specifies “Carnivals, festivals, live entertainment, and haunted house attractions are not allowed. “Trunk or treating” where children go from car to car instead of door to door to receive treats is also not recommended, particularly when part of Halloween events since it is difficult to avoid crowding and sharing food.”


          It is very disappointing to find the fact that the great holiday full of treats and amazing costumes has to be taken away from us. According to me this halloween me and my friends from school were looking forward to going trick or treating this year, but COVID-19 has prevented that. Halloween was pretty fun with friends or even family. Halloween made me forget about school or other things that were on my mind and it would just be a great time hanging out in the night sky seeing all the great costumes people put together. 


          “The location of the gathering – Indoor gatherings generally pose more risk than outdoor gatherings. Indoor gatherings with poor ventilation pose more risk than those with good ventilation, such as those with open windows or doors.” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention clarifies. 


          Yes it is true indoor gatherings pose a greater risk than outdoor gatherings. That’s why people may think it is okay to go out to trick or treat but don’t think that’s the best way to protect our health. According to the CDC, you can become infected when an infected person coughs. NPR Org thinks more young people would be attracted to the idea of there being a Halloween this year because there’s a bunch of candy you can get from each house, but on the other hand older people don’t really care about the candy. 



Lastly, the great holiday Halloween isn’t going to be to like how I would want it to be like. This year now that COVID-19 came along, places like big parties, carnivals, live entertainment aren’t going to be allowed due to the guidelines. It’s scary to me how COVID-19 did a lot of impact on this holiday. But due to the websites, the main idea is to stay home and healthy.
