Local health leaders give trick-or-treating the green light

Parents need to put some precautions in place

TULSA — Tulsa Health Department Executive Director Bruce Dart gave his two-cents on allowing kids to continue with Halloween traditions this year.

“I can’t think of a better opportunity to have some fun, while wearing a mask a keeping your space outdoors,” said Dr. Dart.

Dart says don’t go in large groups and make sure you know how to wear a mask.

“A costume mask should not be used, unless it’s made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers the mouth and nose and doesn’t leave gaps around the face.”

He says don’t wear a mask over your costume mask. That can make it too difficult to breathe.

Tulsa Mayor G-T Bynum is happy to hear the news.

“I can tell you that is very important news at the Bynum house,” said Bynum. “My kids are very excited to know that they can still safely trick-or-treat this year. We won’t be going out with a big group like we usually like to do.”
