Tips for a safer experience

Safer Trick or Treating

This year, the CDC has posted guidelines for safer ways to celebrate Halloween. Please see these tips for making trick or treating safer. We encourage families and all residents to review the CDC guidelines, which view traditional trick or treating (knocking on doors, reaching into a communal bowl of candy)  as a HIGH RISK activity. There are lots of ways to have fun this Halloween while minimizing exposure to the Coronavirus. As a community, we are all working hard together to stay healthy.

  • Please don’t distribute treats if you or anyone in your household are experiencing any symptoms or waiting for Covid testing results
  • Please do not walk through neighborhoods with your children if you or anyone in your household are experiencing any symptoms or waiting for the results of a Covid test.
  • Carve pumpkins, visit a corn maze, do a scavenger hunt, organize a outdoor neighborhood costume contest.  
  • Be sure to keep wearing masks.
