Tips for Trick-or-Treaters and Parents:
- When in large crowds, consider socially distancing if you can.
- If you’re not vaccinated and are in a highly crowded area, consider wearing a mask, however, this is not a mandate.
- Consider sanitizing your hands when out and washing your hands when you’re done trick-or-treating.
Tips for Homeowners:
- Position a distribution table between yourself and trick-or-treaters.
- Distribute candy on a disinfected table to eliminate direct contact.
- Consider handing out candy in an open space where distancing is possible, rather than from the front door.
