With so much unknown and rescheduled this year it’s nice having the good ‘ol haunted houses to look forward to. You will want to visit their websites and see what kind of new protocols have been implemented to protect their “employees” and guests. Some may require face masks, be only held outside or only sell pre-paid, time slot tickets. Did we miss any you think we should add our list?
