ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -- St. Louis County leaders are issuing guidance ahead of Halloween.

In alignment with CDC guidelines, St. Louis County officials suggest trick-or-treating in small groups, avoiding large crowds in possible and social distancing. They also suggest wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings and for activities that involve close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.

Leaders also stress that a costume mask is not a substitute for a protective mask.
