WGRZ-TV produced a story in which Oscar G. Gomez, MD, PhD, professor of pediatrics and chief of the department’s Division of Infectious Diseases, and Mark D. Hicar, MD, PhD, associate professor of pediatrics in the same division, advocated that people not go door-to-door for trick-or-treating this year. “We would not recommend traditional, in-person trick or treating because it is a high risk scenario,” Hicar said. WKYC (Ohio) and WUSA (Virginia) reposted the story.
