CDC Steps to Take when Trick-or-Treating this year!
Many traditional Halloween activities like indoor haunted houses can be high-risk for spreading viruses. Consider alternative outdoor activities when you can. If you may have COVID-19 or you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should not participate in in-person Halloween festivities and should not give out candy to trick-or-treaters, Via CDC.gov
Traditional Halloween activities are fun, but some can increase the risk of getting or spreading COVID-19 or influenza. Plan alternate ways to participate in Halloween.
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.
