Locally, health departments are putting out guidance in the event that people do go door-to-door on Halloween, as WVXU's Tana Weingartner has reported.

She joins Cincinnati Edition along with Pediatric Associates of Mount Carmel Director and Ohio Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics President-elect Chris Peltier, MD, FAAP.
