The departments also released some details on how to stay safe trick-or-treating this year during the pandemic.
Some tips include staying home and/or not handing out candy if sick, avoid group parties or gatherings, wear a face mask (not a Halloween costume mask) that covers both mouth and nose, and washing hands frequently or using hand sanitizer often.
