For Trick-or-Treaters

  • Stay home if you aren’t feeling well: If you have a fever or are feeling under the weather in any way, play it safe and stay at home.
  • Wear a spooky face mask: You’ve got to wear a face mask, so you might as well make it spooky! Break out the bats and skulls or even incorporate it into your costume with a batman or princess themed design.
  • Sanitize, sanitize, sanitize: Before eating any of your candy or touching your face after visiting a house, use your hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) to prevent spreading any unwanted germs.
  • Keep a safe 6-foot distance between you and your friends: If you plan to trick-or-treat with people who you don’t live with, make sure to keep a safe distance between themselves and you.
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home: Once you’re safely inside your home, sing a song while you wash those hands for 20 seconds.

    For Homeowners

    • Don’t hand out candy if you’re sick: If you have a fever or are feeling under the weather in any way, play it safe and don’t hand out candy this year.
    • Wear a spooky face mask: You’ve got to wear a face mask, so you might as well make it spooky! Break out the bats and skulls or if you’re rocking a costume, even incorporate it with a themed design.
    • Put out a distribution table between you and trick-or-treaters: Using a table as a barrier between yourself and trick-or-treats can help everyone maintain a safer distance while still allowing for some face-to-face interaction.
    • Use some sort of tape to mark 6-foot lines in front of your home: It can be hard to tell exactly where the 6 foot distance is, so it can be helpful for trick-or-treaters if you place markers on your porch or driveway.
    • Wash your hands often: Don’t hesitate to take hand washing breaks. It might sound silly, but after coming into contact with a lot of people, taking extra precautions like more frequent handwashing can be a game changer.

      For Parents

      • Stay home if you’re sick: If you have a fever or are feeling under the weather in any way, play it safe and stay at home.
      • Wear a spooky face mask: You’ve got to wear a face mask, so you might as well make it spooky! Break out a Halloween themed face mask to add to the fun.
      • Talk with your kids about social distancing expectations: Letting your children know they’re expected to wear a mask and keep a distance from people they don’t live with can help give them good expectations for the night.
      • Inspect your kids’ candy before they eat it: This might not be a precaution unique to 2020 conditions, but it’s always better safe than sorry.
      • Wash your hands as soon as you get home: Once you’re safely inside your home, wash those hands for 20 seconds.
