With Halloween right around the corner, Hershey wants to ensure coronavirus doesn’t spook trick-or-treaters from eating candy. The company — which, along with its namesake chocolate bar, manufactures Halloween favourites Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kats — launched a website that maps out how to trick-or-treat safely in every county in the United States. The website prompts people to hover over their county, which is colour-coded to display the COVID19 risk level in that area. Green represents the lowest risk for trick-or-treating and red represents the highest risk. The map also lists the number of confirmed cases in each county. On the website, Hershey has Halloween celebration recommendations for each colour — from trick-or-treating with masks on to staying at home to watch scary movies on Netflix and everything in between. For example, for “orange” areas, Hershey recommends a socially distant neighbourhood candy hunt or neighbourhood drive-by costume parties. For “yellow” areas, Hershey suggests a decorate-your-own spooky facemask party.
