Dr. Allison had a similar black and blue outfit on with a “Germex” sign on the front.

During the press conference, Lightfoot said she will allow people to celebrate safely, including a requirement that everyone wear masks.

The announced guidlines also require people handing out candy to “leave a light on or hang a sign in their window letting others know whether they’re participating in the holiday while following social distancing rules and providing hand sanitizer,” according to Chicago Tribune.

Trick-or-treaters will be required to walk in groups of six people or fewer and are must avoid sticking their hand into candy bowls, while house parties and haunted houses will be prohibited, as per the Tribune’s report.
