However, she added on Tuesday that citizens will have to comply with the directives of their local health authorities, who may decide to cancel the traditional door-to-door for children. Montreal and Quebec have not yet announced their intentions.

“There are ways to handle this,” Dr. Tam said at a Parliament Hill briefing, adding that Canadian public health advice would appear on the web.

The safest way to do this is to distribute the candy outside, to respect the two meters distance and to wear the mask, listed the chief administrator.

“There are cool ideas like handing out candy to the end of a hockey stick,” she added.

Dr. Tam also believes that it is better to focus on the distribution of individualized packaging to prevent children from having to dip into the same container of candy.
