Halloween Safety Guidelines Announced For The City of Buffalo
Halloween is just a couple of weeks away, children all over Western New York are ready with their costumes and excited for trick-or-treating. According to WIVB, parents are wondering if their children are gonna be able to go out this year.
Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said, according to WIVB
I plan to issue guidelines with an abundance of caution for familes. There are experts that are concerned that we could see a spike in COVID-19 cases as we move into the colder weather.
According to WIVB, Dr. John Crane professor at the University at Buffalo said,
Those trick-or-treating, including parents and children, should wear a mask. I also think it's probably a good idea for homeowners answering the door with trick-or-treaters at their doorstep should also wear a mask then.

I think it's important to follow all the safety guidelines, and there are some safe ways to enjoy Halloween this year, according to chomp.org
One of the best ideas I would give parents and teenagers is to try to go to only the houses that you know.
