Updated October 16, 2020

John K. Crane, MD, PhD, professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases, is quoted in a report on Halloween safety guidelines to follow amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Crane urged trick-or-treaters and their parents to wear masks. “I also think it’s probably a good idea for homeowners answering the door with trick-or-treaters at their doorstep to probably also wear masks then,” he said.
