The Pandemic has changed many of the ways that we do things this year, and Halloween is no different. The CDC has made some recommendations on how you and your family can still enjoy a fun and activity-filled Halloween. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays/halloween.html
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.
Wash hands before handling treats.
Wear a mask.
Wear a mask
Make your cloth mask part of your costume. (NOTE: Crayola just launched some wonderfully colored Halloween masks you can purchase. See picture above).
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
Stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you
Indoors and outdoors, you are more likely to get or spread COVID-19 when you are in close contact with others for a long time.
Wash your hands
Bring hand sanitizer with you and use it after touching objects or other people.
Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Parents: 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.
