Halloween COVID

COVID-related Halloween safety tips:
Trick or treating-

  • Don't go trick-or-treating if feeling ill, even if symptoms are minor
  • Choose costumes that allow a non-medical mask to be worn underneath - make sure you can see and breathe comfortably
  • Minimize contact with others: trick-or-treat with your family or cohort, remain within your community, and stay 2 metres apart
  • Avoid touching doorbells or railings: call "trick or treat" from 2 metres away, knock instead of using doorbells, use hand sanitizer after touching surfaces
  • Wash hands and disinfect packages before eating candy

Giving out candy-

  • Don't hand out candy if feeling ill or isolating
  • Wear a non-medical mask that fully covers your nose and mouth
  • Ask trick-or-treaters to knock or call out instead of ringing the doorbell
  • Use tongs to hand out pre-packaged candy to avoid handling treats

Find creative ways to maintain distance from trick-or-treaters:

  • Hand out treats from your driveway or front lawn, if weather permits
  • Set up a table or desk to help keep yourself distanced
  • Make candy bags and space them out on a table or blanket; don't leave out self-serve bowls of bulk candy
  •  Build a candy slide, candy catapult or other fun, non-touch delivery methods
