Have a Safe - Not Spooky - Halloween
Oct 20, 2020
Halloween is a holiday filled with spook-tacular activities, but it's important to take steps to stay safe while having fun. This chart can help you plan your activities while reducing health risks like COVID-19 and influenza.
- 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.
- Indoors and outdoors, stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you.
- Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently. Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Parents - please 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.
- If you're handing out treats, avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters. Be outdoors to give out treats if possible. Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take. Think of some healthy treats you can give out - perhaps even some non-food treats as part of the Teal Pumpkin Project for kiddos who may have food allergies. Check out this article for more info!
