Fauci’s recommendations are in line with comments made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky last month.

She shared on CBS’ Face the Nation that young children should be able to safely go out for Halloween in small groups.

«If you’re able to be outdoors, absolutely. Limit crowds. I wouldn’t necessarily go to a crowded— crowded Halloween party, but I think that we should be able to let our kids go trick-or-treating in small groups,» Walensky said.

But earlier this month, the CDC caused some confusion about recommendations for those looking to celebrate the fall and winter holidays.

Previously posted, outdated guidance on the CDC’s website, which recommended keeping windows open and family meetings brief, won’t be the agency’s final word on the 2021 holidays.

The CDC said it is in the process of updating its advice for Americans to safely observe the upcoming holiday season.
