    U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Urges Families to Follow CDC Halloween Advice for Safe Celebrating; a COVID-19 Halloween Doesn’t Have to Be Scary | site |



    (October 6, 2020) - - Today, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published the following information:

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is urging families to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advice for Halloween this year. Among the key guidance: A Halloween mask is not an appropriate substitute for a protective cloth mask. CPSC joins with CDC in recommending that consumers wear a protective cloth mask of at least two layers of breathable fabric—not a costume mask. Protective masks should never be worn under a costume mask because it can become hard to breathe. If children or adults wear costumes this Halloween, be aware that costume fabrics and loose, billowy clothing (such as capes or gowns) can easily catch fire.

    National Transportation Safety Board calls for Renewed Road Safety Effort as Nation Reopens | site |


    (May 18, 2020) - - Today (May 18, 2020), the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) published the following information: WASHINGTON (May 18, 2020) — The National Transportation Safety Board is calling on Americans to practice highway safety with the same sense of responsibility they applied to reducing the spread of the coronavirus when they take to the nation’s roads as the country continues to reopen.

While it is too early to tell what will happen to highway crash and fatality trends in the year of the pandemic, the desire to return to normality will increase the number of drivers on the road and that increases risk for highway users. “The number of traffic fatalities was a crisis before the pandemic,” said Robert L.
