This year’s Trick-or-Treat hours will be from .
The CDC has determined that traditional, door-to-door trick-or-treating is a higher-risk activity. The CDC recommends that individuals and families avoid higher-risk activities as much as possible.
Participating in trick-or-treating is a personal choice for each family, and neighbors may choose differently from others based on their own comfort levels. All trick-or-treaters are encouraged to be respectful of their neighbors’ decisions to participate in trick-or-treating or not.
*Should your family choose to trick-or-treat, please carefully review the safety tips below*
· DO NOT hand out treats or trick-or-treat if you are sick.
· Going with people you don’t live with can expose you to COVID-19.
· Do not use a costume mask as a substitute for a cloth mask unless it’s made of 2 or more layers of breathable fabric. Do not wear a costume mask over a cloth mask, as it may become difficult to breathe.
· Staying close to home may reduce the likelihood of the virus spreading out more broadly.
· Leave space on the sidewalk and when going up to houses.
· Use sanitizer often and before eating, or after coughing/sneezing. Wash your hands thoroughly when you return home.
· to let trick-or treaters know you’re participating.
· while maintaining physical distance:
· Candy should be handed out by one individual who should be masked and gloved. Children should not be allowed to grab candy out of a bowl.
· Distribute treats by placing on a table on the front porch, walkway or driveway instead of handing treats out.
· Consider fun ways of distributing candy and maintaining distance such as candy chutes or individual grab bags or paper cups.
