  • Covid-19 has made planning for this year’s Halloween festivities a little scarier than normal but health experts have advised how best to go about it all while avoiding the spectre of contagion.

  • The age-old art of pumpkin carving, scary scavenger hunts and costume parades are all ideal ways of maintaining some blood-curdling customs at a safe social distance.
