Halloween Safety During Covid-19
By Dr. Renae Norton

Halloween, which includes a full moon and lands on a Saturday, will be like no other, keeping in line with the rest of 2020.  So, for the sake of safety and to prevent a total Quarantine-o-ween, here are some tips and guidelines! 

First, check out alternative Halloween activities and trick-or-treat options and choose those best suited for your family and area. Make sure all are aligned with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) social distancing guidelines.

How to Keep Trick or Treat Safe and Fun for Halloween 2020

Handing Out Treats

  • Do not hand out candy if you are sick
  • Wear a face mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose
  • Stay outside, on the porch or in the driveway to hand out candy
  • Distribute clean eat treats on a disinfected table to eliminate direct contact
  • Rather than having a bowl, place pre-packaged treats spread out on the table
  • Disinfect the table frequently
  • Use duct tape to mark 6-foot lines in front of your home and leading to your driveway
  • Wash hands often

Trick-or-Treaters

  • Stay home if sick
  • Trick-or-treat only with people you live with
  • Remain 6 feet apart from people not in your household
  • Wear a face mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose (even under/over your Halloween mask)
  • Bring your own hand sanitizer or wipes (with sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol) and sanitize frequently while out, especially during key times like before eating or after coughing/sneezing
  • Wash your hands as soon as you return home

Parents

  • Stay home if anyone in the house is sick
  • Talk with your children about safety and social distancing guidelines and expectations
  • Guide children to stay on the right side of the road always to ensure distance
  • Carry a flashlight at night and ensure your children are wearing reflective clothing
  • Wear a face mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose
  • Wash your hands as soon as you return home
  • Inspect candy
