The advice has been brought in by the Government in areas, including the Bradford district, where Tier Two lockdown status is in place.
Parents and children are being asked not to go ‘Trick or Treating’ on Halloween this year because of the risk of spreading the Covid-19 virus.
Groups of children accompanied by their parents or carers knocking on doors and receiving sweets from different people would create an ideal situation for the virus to spread from person to person.
Cllr Abdul Jabar, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety, said: “We can’t thank our residents enough for making the sacrifices they have already made to prevent the spread of this horrible virus.
“We are asking them to try to adapt their traditional celebrations of Halloween and Bonfire Night to the unique situation we are in this year, so as not to break the regulations designed to keep everyone safe.
“The advice to Stay Safe, Stay Alert and Stay Home must be followed until we can go back to normal again and enjoy our lives as we have always done.”
Rombalds Radio has a page dedicated to local things to do for Halloween at www.rombaldsradio.com/halloween/ which includes a number of neighbourhood Pumpkin Trails, where children wonder around streets local to them looking out for decorated homes or those with pumpkin posters, and their parent/carer gives them a treat.
