Statement from Mayor Thomas M. McGee: Regarding Halloween
As Halloween approaches and Lynn remains at a high risk for COVID-19, I strongly encourage all residents to refrain from engaging in high-risk Halloween activities. Instead, I hope we can find alternative ways to celebrate, as we have had to do all year, in order to keep our community healthy and safe. The CDC categorizes traditional Halloween activities, like trick or treating or indoor costume parties, as high-risk. The following link and attached flyer break down the CDC’s low, moderate and high-risk activities, which include some different ways to celebrate Halloween safely. The state has also released updated guidance for Halloween during COVID-19, which can be found here. Thank you for all of your continued cooperation and patience during these unprecedented times to stop the spread of COVID-19.

A medida que se acerca Halloween y Lynn sigue en alto riesgo de contraer COVID-19, recomiendo encarecidamente a todos los residentes que se abstengan de participar en actividades de alto riesgo en Halloween. En cambio, espero que podamos encontrar formas alternativas de celebrar, como hemos tenido que hacer durante todo el año, para mantener nuestra comunidad sana y segura. El CDC clasifica las actividades tradicionales de Halloween, como el truco o trato o las fiestas de disfraces de interior, como de alto riesgo. El siguiente enlace y el volante adjunto desglosan las actividades de bajo, moderado y alto riesgo de los CDC, que incluyen algunas formas diferentes de celebrar Halloween de manera segura. El estado también ha publicado una guía actualizada para Halloween durante COVID-19, que se puede encontrar aquí. Gracias por toda su continua cooperación y paciencia durante estos tiempos sin precedentes para detener la propagación de COVID-19.
