As Halloween creeps closer, NSW Health is offering trick or treaters some advice on staying safe from COVID-19, which is still lurking in the shadows.
Executive Director of NSW Health Protection, Dr Jeremy McAnulty, said as long as levels of community transmission remain low, NSW Health is supportive of Halloween celebrations going ahead.
“Halloween celebrations will need to be a little different this year due to COVID-19 and we are urging everyone in the community to play their part,” Dr McAnulty said.
Practice good hand hygiene and use hand sanitiser after touching common surfaces.
