Delaware plans to allow Halloween and harvest events, including trick-or-treating.

The state of Delaware doesn’t want to cancel Halloween along with all the other events that have been skipped this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic , officials said Tuesday.

“Nobody’s going to have to buy a mask, that’s for sure,” Gov. John Carney said Tuesday during his weekly COVID-19 press conference. “I’m the Irish governor who canceled St. Paddy’s Day. God forbid that I cancel Halloween.”

He deferred to Molly Magarik, secretary of the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, who said as a parent she understood the anxiety she’s heard from friends of her children and others about the topic.

Magarik said the department already is working with towns and schools that have Halloween or harvest themed events to enable them to do it safely.

“That includes trick-or-treating,” Magarik said during Carney’s weekly COVID-19 press conference. “We look forward to helping people understand how they can safely enjoy the fall season and Halloween.”

Carney wondered aloud about using the holiday to incentivize mask wearing because it’s the best way to avoid the spread of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
