The statement comes just one week after Fauci said it’s “too soon to tell” if families should gather together for Christmas in December.
“You can get out there – you’re outdoors for the most part, at least, when my children were out there doing trick-or-treating – and enjoy it,” Fauci said. “I mean, this is a time that children love. It’s a very important part of the year for children. I know my children enjoy it.
“Particularly if you’re vaccinated,” he added. “If you’re not vaccinated, again, think about that you’ll add an extra degree of protection to yourself and your children and your family and your community. So it’s a good time to reflect on why it’s important to get vaccinated.
“But go out there and enjoy Halloween as well as the other holidays that will be coming up,” he said.
