This should be one of the biggest Halloweens in years……there is a full moon, it falls on a Saturday……but a little thing known as a pandemic has the potential to ruin all the fun.

We’re still over a month away from the big day but Hershey’s is doing their best to help. They have created a website which offers a breakdown of cases in each country and region of that country and the guidelines from experts there.

The maps are colour coded also.  Red means the area is a high risk for trick or treating and green means the area is a low risk.

(As of right now, Canada appears to be in the yellow zone.)

Based on the colour/risk of your area, Hershey has recommendations on how to celebrate the day!

For example, for “orange” areas, Hershey recommends a socially distant neighbourhood candy hunt or neighbourhood drive-by costume parties. 

For “yellow” areas, Hershey suggests a decorate-your-own spooky face mask party.

Fingers crossed it’s deemed safe to do some socially distanced trick-or-treating this year!
