BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Halloween is just days away and this morning we talked with Kern County Public Health about how you can stay safe and healthy this weekend!

When it comes to trick-or-treating, Public Health is recommending people follow the guidelines set forth by the state. The state says trick-or-treating is a high-risk activity and if you do decide to go, make sure to take the proper precautions: take hand sanitizer, maintain social distance, and wear a face covering.

If you're planning on handing out candy for this Halloween, Public Health says to keep it outside of your house or put out treats on a table.

Public Health says that they are still recommending against large gatherings. If officials learn of large gatherings ahead of time, they will do their part to advise against the gathering.
