New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday he will not ban trick-or-treaters on Halloween amid the pandemic.
Speaking on CNN affiliate News 12 Long Island, Cuomo said he didn’t think it was appropriate, according to his office.
“I would not ban trick-or-treaters going door to door. I don't think that's appropriate. You have neighbors — if you want to go knock on your neighbor's door, God bless you and I'm not going to tell you not to. If you want to go for a walk with your child through the neighborhood, I'm not gonna tell you you can't take your child to the neighborhood, I'm not going to do that — I'll give you my advice and guidance and then you will make a decision what you do that night,” Cuomo said, according to his office.
