With many large events canceled since the pandemic began, many predicted that trick-or-treating this year could be canceled. Gov. Andrew Cuomo stated weeks ago that he had no plans to cancel trick-or-treating on Halloween. The state did issue guidelines for haunted houses and locally parades and other Halloween events were canceled or modified due to safety precautions. Masks and social distancing are encouraged by trick-or-treaters, parents and people handing out candy.

The State Department of Health made significant changes as it relates to screening and allowing students and staff to attend school. There is now a 48-hour period for students and staff to see a medical provider following the onset of any COVID-19 symptom. Also, if a medical provider orders a COVID-19 test, the results must be back within 48 hours. If the individual fails to meet either 48-hour requirement, the person and their family will enter quarantine for up to 10 days, officials say.

Do you support the new 48-hour state mandates for students and staff to attend school?
