Trick-or-treating banned in L.A. due to virus risk
(KSWB) - Trick-or-treating won’t be allowed in Los Angeles this Halloween.
Officials banned it this year due to the risk of coronavirus.
The L.A. County Department of Public Health said in a news release that it would be difficult to maintain social distancing on porches and at front doors.
The guidance also bans so-called “trunk or treating” events from cars, as well as gatherings or parties with non-household members.
Carnivals, festivals, live entertainment and haunted house attractions also are prohibited.
Events in which people remain in their vehicles will be allowed.
