“If you’re having family over and you’re completely vaccinated, if you feel comfortable removing your masks, that would be absolutely appropriate in a fully vaccinated group,” he said.
He added that more detailed guidelines for Thanksgiving and Halloween festivities are to come on Thursday.
In 2020, kids were told to avoid trick-or-treating in COVID-19 hotspots, which included Toronto. On halloween day last year, the province reported 1,015 new COVID-19 cases. COVID-19 cases in the province have remained well below 1,000 since May.
