    (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.

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.
