The City of Los Angeles, for example, has flip-flopped on its decision, according to CNN. Initially Trick-or-Treating was banned, but then the guidance was changed, simply advising against the tradition.

"We are recommending that trick-or-treating not happen this year," said Dr. Barbara Ferrer, Los Angeles County's public health director. "It's just not sensible in a pandemic," she said.

In the Quad Cities area, the Muscatine City Council planned to hold a discussion on Trick-or-Treating at 7 p.m. Thursday, September 10.
