Outdoor trick-or-treating permitted in ‘orange’ areas
Halloween parties and trick-or-treating have been banned in Nunavik’s “red alert” communities as the region continues to combat outbreaks of COVID-19.
The Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services made the announcement on Friday.
The communities affected by the trick-or-treating ban are Kangiqsualujjuaq, Kuujjuaq, Salluit, Ivujivik and Kangirsuk.
Outdoor trick-or-treating is allowed in “orange alert” communities, which includes all communities that are not under “red alert.”
On Thursday, the board announced there were nine new cases, adding to the regional total of 120 active cases.
