St. Joseph County Deputy Health Officer shares recommendations for a safe Halloween
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – ABC57 talks with St. Joseph County Deputy Health Officer Dr. Mark Fox on COVID-19 safety for Halloween activities.
ABC57’s Brian Conybeare hosts a live interview with Dr. Fox.
In this interview, the topics covered include whether or not the health department signed off on South Bend’s Cops and Goblins event, recommendations for parents when it comes to door to door trick or treating, and what could be the potential reason for the huge spike in COVID cases at nursing homes.
Dr. Fox shares some tips and recommendations on safely trick-or-treating amidst the pandemic.
“It’s an outdoor event-that offers one level of protection with air circulation- but its important to pay attention to physical distancing between groups that are visiting any particular house,” said Dr. Fox. “We are recommending that kids trick or treat within their own household unit, rather than in large groups of kids.”
