Los Angeles Bans Halloween Trick-or-Treating Over Coronavirus Fears
Public health authorities are cracking down on a holiday activity where the
age group least at risk of COVID-19 walks around outside wearing masks.

There are few things scarier than an overreaching government. Perhaps to get
into the holiday spirit then, Los Angeles has decided to ban
trick-or-treating this year.

Late Tuesday, news broke of public health guidelines issued by the Los
Angeles County Department of Public Health (LADPH) that ban door-to-door
trick-or-treating, Halloween parties where non-members of a household will
be present, and haunted houses.

The order, dated from last week, nevertheless allows for online Halloween
parties (fun!), drive-in scary movie nights, and Halloween-themed car
parades. The county's new guidelines also graciously permit people to still
decorate their homes and yards.

"Since some of the traditional ways in which this holiday is celebrated does
not allow you to minimize contact with non-household members, it is
important to plan early and identify safer alternatives," reads the text of
the order.

Health officials told The Los Angeles Times that trick-or-treating, in
particular, was not going to be allowed "because it can be very difficult to
maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors."

Violation of the county's Public Health Officer order, which was last
updated on September 4, is punishable by both fines and imprisonment.

It's not clear whether those penalties apply to violations of the new
Halloween guidelines, or how the county intends to enforce its prohibition
on trick-or-treating. Reason requested clarification from LADPH, and will
update with any response we receive.

Halloween stoked panic among public health authorities and the general
public long before coronavirus. That includes the regular fears about drug-
and razor-laced candies, offensive costumes, and sex offenders out on the
prowl.

The LAPHD has historically issued warnings about the high-sugar content of
Halloween candies, alongside gentle reminders that participating households
can hand out plenty of other fun things besides sweets.

Even in a time of rampant public health restrictions, Los Angeles' crackdown
on Halloween seems unnecessarily restrictive. Indeed, it's hard to imagine a
pre-pandemic activity more suited to the requirements of social distancing
than trick-or-treating.

The activity occurs outside, where we know the risk of coronavirus
transmission is much lower. Everyone is already wearing masks. Curbside
pickup, whereby a bowl of candy and maybe a note asking trick-or-treaters to
take only one piece, is already a common practice.

On top of that, children, the primary trick-or-treating participants, are at
the lowest risk of developing serious COVID-19 symptoms, although they can
still spread the disease.

Plenty of people who are at higher risk of serious illness or death from
COVID-19 might not want disease vectors showing up at their doorstep.
Fortunately, the accepted Halloween tradition of leaving your porch light
off if you don't want to be bothered on that night can help those people
too.

Recommending best practices for trick-or-treating seems like a more
proportional approach to the transmission risk that Halloween poses.
Instead, the county is embracing the most authoritarian possible response to
the holiday. Spooky.

Update: On Wednesday afternoon Los Angeles County public health officials
reversed course on their trick-or-treat ban, saying instead that the
activity was "not recommended."

Actually, there is no one age group proven to be less susceptible to
becoming infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus. Moreover, the wearing
of Halloween masks instead of particle-barrier masks would make any
age group more susceptible to become infected.

This motivates us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to
rapidly find out at any moment, even On-line, who among us are
unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order
to convince them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their
doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic so that all children can
safely resume in-person gatherings such as Trick-or-Treating here in
the U.S.

Indeed, I am wonderfully hungry ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
and hope you, Michael, also have a healthy appetite too.

So how are you ?

From the article you cited:

"Update: On Wednesday afternoon Los Angeles County public health
officials reversed course on their trick-or-treat ban, saying instead
that the activity was "not recommended.""

So trick-or-treat is now allowed in L.A.

While wonderfully hungry in the Holy Spirit, Who causes (Deuteronomy
8:3) us to hunger, I note that you, Michael, not only don't have
COVID-19 but are rapture (Luke 17:37) ready and pray (2 Chronicles
7:14) that our Everlasting (Isaiah 9:6) Father in Heaven continues to
give us "much more" (Luke 11:13) Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) so
that we'd have much more of His Help to always say/write that we're
"wonderfully hungry" in **all** ways including especially caring to
http://bit.ly/ConvinceItForward (John 15:12 as shown by
http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) with all glory (
http://bit.ly/Psalm117_ ) to GOD (aka HaShem, Elohim, Abba, DEO), in
the name (John 16:23) of LORD Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen.

Laus DEO !

Be hungrier, which really is wonderfully healthier especially for
diabetics and other heart disease patients:

GOD, Who causes us to hunger (Deuteronomy 8:3) when He blesses us

Too bad, you and Chung could have gone trick-or-treating in black

Your writing that being covered by the Lamb of GOD's Blood (Matthew
27:25), Who removes (Revelation 7:14) sin from our robes thereby
making them white, is a fate to "suffer" is blaspheming against (Mark
3:29) Him, which is an eternal sin.

>Shame on andrew, look at his red face.

LIE.

The color of my face in **not** visible here on USENET nor is the
color of my face red for those who can see me.

>He is trying to pull a fast one. His scripture bit is found among these:
>
>'14 Bible verses about Spiritual Hunger'

Such are the lies coming from the lying pens of the
http://bit.ly/terribly_hungry (Genesis 25:32) commentators.

That which is "spiritual" is independent of time so that there
would've been no reference to "now."

Therefore, the LORD is referring to physical hunger here instead of
the spiritual "hunger and thirst for righteousness" elsewhere in
Scripture.

Indeed, physical hunger can **not** coexist with physical thirst
because the latter results in the loss of saliva needed for physical
hunger.

It is when we hunger for food "now" (Luke 6:21a) that we are able to
eat food "now."

No such time constraints exist for "spiritual hunger."

Moreover, the perspective of Luke 6:21a through the eyes of a
physician (i.e. Dr. Luke) would be logically expected to be physical
instead of spiritual.

All glory ( http://bit.ly/Psalm117_ ) to GOD for His compelling you to
unwittingly demonstrate your ever worsening cognitive condition which
is tragically a consequence of His cursing (Jeremiah 17:5) you more
than ever.

Laus DEO !

Indeed, the righteous know to be satisfied (Luke 6:21a) with an omer
(Exodus 16:16) of manna, while the wicked need (Proverbs 13:25) this
knowledge as evident by their eating until they are full (i.e.
satiated).

>Joel
>2:26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of
>the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my

Indeed, an omer (32 ounces per Revelation 6:6) of manna is plenty
(Joel 2:26) with all glory ( http://bit.ly/Psalm117_ ) to GOD and to
the shame of you, who are eternally (Mark 3:29) condemned.

Laus DEO ! !

>Psalms
>107 For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.

Indeed, being filled (Psalm 107:9) with an omer (Exodus 16:16) of
manna is a Wonderful (Isaiah 9:6) thing while being satiated (i.e.
full) is evil.

>Acts
>14:17 "Yet he did not leave himself without witness, for he did good by

In the interim, you, who are eternally (Mark 3:29) condemned, will
never be satisfied (Acts 14:17) because you are ever more cursed
(Jeremiah 17:5) by GOD.
