Halloween Safety Tips - COVID Edition

Halloween safety tips from CDC.GOV

Make trick-or-treating safer

  • Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters.

  • Give out treats outdoors, if possible.

  • Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take.

  • Wash hands before handling treats.

  • Wear a mask.

Wear a mask

  • Make your cloth mask part of your costume.

  • A costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask.

  • Do NOT wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult.

  • Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing.

Stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you

  • Indoors and outdoors, you are more likely to get or spread COVID-19 when you are in close contact with others for a long time.

Wash your hands

  • Bring hand sanitizer with you and use it after touching objects or other people.

  • Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Parents: supervise young children using hand sanitizer.

  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home and before you eat any treats.

Other Ideas For celebrating halloween

  • Hide Halloween treats in and around your house. Hold a Halloween treat hunt with household members.

  • Hold an outdoor costume parade or contest so everyone can show off their costumes.

  • Host an outdoor Halloween movie night with friends or neighbors or an indoor movie night with your household members.

Remind your kids:

  • Never enter a stranger’s home.

  • Never accept rides from strangers.

  • Stay on the sidewalks, not the streets, and avoid backyards, shortcuts and alleys.

Take extra care on Halloween night:

  • Don't leave your home unattended.

  • Keep pets inside your home or another safe place.

  • Motorists should drive slowly, yield to young pedestrians, and watch out for trick-or-treaters darting into the street.

Stay safe and have a happy Halloween!
