Almost Half of Americans Say They Won’t Hand Out Candy This Halloween

Hey, it’s Rich Dale.  What’s your plan for Halloween? Are you still going to hand out candy like usual or skip the sweet treat tradition this year because of coronavirus?

In a new survey from Apartment Guide, 46% of people said they won’t be dishing out any candy this year, 30% said it’ll be business as usual, and 24% responded that they’ll just leave a candy bowl outside their door for trick-or-treaters.

CDC officials have recommended a candy scavenger hunt or hosting a virtual costume party instead of going door-to-door to cut down on the risk of spreading coronavirus.

I think we’re still planning to hand out candy, but we will be masked up for it.  Or should I just keep all our candy to myself and use COVID as an excuse?  Naaahh.
