In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Los Angeles County has “canceled”
Halloween this year. County officials have released guidelines for Halloween this
year that include restrictions on some of the holiday’s most basic traditions.
LA County Halloween restrictions:
-No door-to-door trick or treating.
-No “trunk or treating” either.
-No Halloween parties with non-household members.
-No carnivals, festivals, haunted houses, or live entertainment.
It is not clear what penalties will be imposed on individuals who violate these
rules, but officials have said fines will be issued and jail is an option, as well.
Other counties, including San Bernardino County, are considering similar
Halloween restrictions in an effort to limit the spread of the virus.
You are the owner of a small business that operates in a very popular outdoor mall
in San Bernardino. (Feel free to come up with a name for your business and a type
of business – if it helps you.) Every year, the mall and its businesses have held a
very popular and profitable Halloween Celebration and Trick or Treating event for
the local community.
As a business owner, you certainly need the customers and potential profit that the
Halloween Party and Trick or Treating event would generate. Like most
businesses, the pandemic has hurt your business – as you have had to lay-off
workers, cut operating hours, and reduce inventory. The Halloween celebration in
your mall would help all the businesses generate profit and reconnect with many
members of the community.
However, as a concerned member of the community, you also want to do
everything possible to help limit the spread of this pandemic.
Write an email to the San Bernardino County Covid-19 Task Force explaining
why the county should not cancel Halloween festivities as LA County has done.
Explain why the county should allow Halloween celebrations to continue this year.
