"Los Angeles County cancels door-to-door Halloween trick-or-treating

Parties, carnivals and festivals also will not be permitted this Halloween

Los Angeles County will not permit door-to-door Halloween trick-or-treating this fall, citing coronavirus health-safety concerns.

The county has also said no to parties, carnivals and festivals, according to local TV station KCAL- 9, CBSN Los Angeles.

“Door-to-door trick-or-treating is not allowed because it can be very difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors especially in neighborhoods that are popular with trick or treaters,” the county’s public health department said in recently released guidelines.

Americans have been required to comply with numerous healthy-safety orders since the pandemic started nearly six months ago, including wearing face makes and keeping six feet away from others.

The pandemic has also resulted in the cancelation of numerous other American traditions, including Fourth of July celebrations and in-person high school graduation ceremonies.

Los Angeles County also said that children cannot go from car to car instead of door to door to receive treats, an alternative known as “trunk-or-treating.”

But protests & riots are OK.

Got it.

Gonna have to ban extended families getting together for Thanksgiving, too. Got to have plenty of COVID cover n place when they cancel in-person voting in November.

When does enough become enough?

Serious question.

When does the public say "**** you, and your shady ass socialist health ministry. Take your arbitray rules and your morale crushing, life destroying, business ravaging regulations and shove them up your ass" and do what they want to?

Just me, but I haven’t been comfortable with door-to-door trick or treating since about 1970. Halloween is one “holiday” that could go away and not be missed.

who cares, really, if a bunch of L.A. kids wander around soliciting unhealthy, high caloric, possibly covid=laced candy??? those kids who do will have a higher covid/death rate. those parents intelligent enough (heh!!) to provide fun at home will have their 'get' live longer, and prosper. Who cares, really?

I live in a pretty rural place. My grandchildren are the only trick-or-treaters I get on Halloween. Would my grandchildren be allowed to do this if I lived in LA County?

And I don't think it hyperbole to think that somewhere in California and/or New York some politicians are trying to determine if banning Thanksgiving would be a bridge too far? We'll soon see.

I used to love Halloween as a kid. And I still enjoy giving out treats to all the kids. It’s a great, harmless evening for everyone involved. I ran out of candy last year after my 90th Trick or Treater.

Thanks American Leftists. You damnable despoiler’s of everyday traditional American joy. Why do you have to “officially ban Halloween?” Let the people decide if they want to take the risk. I’m sure going to revel in watching your misery come this next presidential election.

Out here in the normal world we’re still having Hallowe’en. Standard precautions prevail (commercial wrapped items only, etc) but the costumes and fun continue. Keep in mind that filthy L.A. is in dysfunctional, socialist CA which died some time ago and the banditos are squabbling over portions of the corpse.
