BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - With Halloween this weekend, Vermont Health Commissioner Doctor Mark Levine is advising those who celebrate to celebrate safely.

Levine advises keeping activities outside and to avoid large groups if possible. “Keep groups small and help discourage large clusters of people. When inside be sure to wear a mask and not just your costume mask,” Levine said.

Levine says you do not need to disinfect candy but have kids wash their hands before.

Officials have also urged those visiting the elderly or other vulnerable populations, to get tested beforehand.
