Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday approved of children trick-or-treating this Halloween despite the ongoing pandemic.
Just last year, the holiday activity was considered to be "high-risk" amid high coronavirus cases.
"Hopefully it's going to continue to go in that trajectory downward, but we have to just be careful that we don't prematurely declare victory in many respects," Dr. Anthony Fauci discusses the dip in daily Covid-19 cases. #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/nVB3Ztl8zt

"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. 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," he continued. "But go out there and enjoy Halloween, as well as the other holidays that will be coming up."
Fauci advised parents last year to be careful allowing their children to trick-or-treat, saying that it could be reasonably safe if they incorporate masks as part of their costumes and used Purell hand sanitizer after each house.
