Halloween weekend is here, and many people are wondering what the holiday will look like due to the pandemic. Fortunately, health officials have given people the green light to enjoy Halloween activities safely by following a few simple tips.

“We know that being outside is low-risk compared to a lot of indoor activities, so we recommend enjoying as many fun activities as you can outside,” said Dr. Erin DeLaney, a physician with UAB’s Family and Community Medicine. “During the Halloween season, there are plenty of fun outdoor activities, such as corn mazes, haunted trails, pumpkin carving and mummy races, so we really recommend taking advantage of these outdoor activities to reduce your chance of getting or spreading the flu and COVID-19.”

For activities that take place at night, DeLaney reminds everyone to wear reflective gear or lights for safety.
