“We cannot say it enough – safety is our main priority. We would love to see the crowds and pass out candy to all of the adorable kids but until we get the ‘all clear’ we’ll continue to play it safe,” said Destiny USA Director of Marketing Nikita Jankowski. “We are still embracing the spirit of Halloween, minus the large crowds, or physical (hand-to-hand) contact.”
