Airbnb will not allow travelers to book one-night stays over Halloween weekend in the U.S. and Canada, the company shared with Travel + Leisure on Friday, and will cancel any existing one-night bookings.

The company will prohibit anyone from booking a one-night stay for an entire home listing on Oct. 30 or Oct. 31, according to the company. Anyone who has already booked an entire home one-night stay on those dates will find their reservations canceled and will be reimbursed. Airbnb said it would pay for the reimbursements and affected hosts would still get paid.

The new policy is part of the company’s effort to prevent large gatherings and parties, following last Halloween when a deadly shooting broke out at a California house party. Earlier this year, Airbnb canceled reservations for more than two dozen listings in Los Angeles it identified as “party houses” and removed some entirely from its site.
