It is officially fall, so the CDC has issued some guidelines on how you can celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving safely this year.

The agency says some lower risk activities include carving pumpkins and doing virtual costume contests. The CDC says traditional trick-or-treating should be avoided. Costume masks should not be worn unless they qualify under CDC guidelines, and they should not be worn over a cloth mask.


When it comes to Thanksgiving, it is best to have a small dinner with only those who live in your household.

What about Black Friday shopping crowds? Experts say don’t even think about it.
