The Ontario government is expected to produce recommendations to celebrate Halloween in the era of COVID-19, says Ottawa Medical Officer of Health Dr. Vera Etches.

“I’m sure that will be good advice and we will follow that as well,” Etches said in response to questions at a press conference on Friday on how the Oct. 31 festivities would work in the midst of a pandemic.

“I think there is still a lot of fun to be had with Halloween. There are a lot of disguises and treats that can be made and handled in a safer way. It’s really about getting back to basics, ”Etches said.

“What makes us successful is that people stand two meters apart, that they wear a mask when they are inside, that they stay at home when they are sick and wash their hands. So that’s how we should approach Halloween. ”

At another press conference earlier in the week, Premier Doug Ford was asked about Halloween and whether the trick or treat would be allowed this year.
