Halloween is approaching, and this year, officials says it’s safe to trick-or-treat outside.

"We know that outdoors is certainly much safer than indoors," said Linda Vail, Ingham County Health Officer. "I guess my only concern would be, you know, like indoor Halloween parties.”

While risk of COVID-19 transmission while trick-or-treating is low, Vail advises parents to keep their kids at home if they're feeling sick.

Vail recommends incorporating masks into their costumes and social distancing when possible.

“Proceed with whatever caution makes you the most comfortable," she said.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) also released a list of safety tips to practice this Halloween.

For trick-or-treaters and parents, they recommend avoiding large groups. They also urge adults and children to get vaccinated for COVID-19 and the flu.

For homeowners, MDHHS recommends handing out candy in an open space or leaving candy out on a table for trick-or-treaters to grab themselves.
