Ontario’s top doctor to release guidance for Thanksgiving, Halloween

Ontario’s chief medical officer of health is set to release his advice Thursday for safely celebrating Thanksgiving and Halloween.

Earlier this week, Dr. Kieran Moore did touch on some of his recommendations for Thanksgiving, saying celebrating indoors and unmasked with a fully vaccinated group is “absolutely appropriate.”

Ontario’s gathering limits of 100 outdoors and 25 indoors are still in place.

Moore says if there is a combination of vaccinated and unvaccinated people in the group, attendees may consider keeping masks on indoors, particularly for older people or those with chronic medical conditions.

Last year, Ontario recommended that kids in the four COVID-19 hot spots at the time, which were Toronto, Ottawa, Peel and York regions, should not go trick-or-treating.

Ontario’s average of daily new COVID-19 cases — at 576 — has generally been declining since early September, while last year at this time it was a bit higher, but on the rise.
