The pandemic is making me think about Halloween costumes and candy earlier than ever.I am also wondering what my busy block will be doing. Will the couple at the end of my street have the player piano going as they hand out treats? Or will they go dark, as they did last year, worried about spreading coronavirus if they participate?
My family is now fully vaccinated, since my child is, amazingly, a teenager. But are we safe to wander out in our Halloween-crazed neighborhood? We don’t know who is vaccinated among the 12 and older set, and the under 12 set cannot yet be vaccinated.
