ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced he would not ban trick-or-treaters from going door to door this Halloween during an interview on News 12 Long Island with Tara Joyce Tuesday

“I would not ban trick-or-treaters going door to door,” Gov. Cuomo said. “I don’t think that’s appropriate. You have neighbors, if you want to go knock on your neighbor’s door, God bless you. I’m not going to tell you not to. If you want to go for a walk with your child through the neighborhood, I’m not going to tell you you can’t take your child through the neighborhood, I’m not going to do that. I will give you my advice and guidance and then you will make the decision about what you do that night.”
