If taking your children trick-or-treating, limit the number of houses you visit and ask your children to stay as far from treat-givers as possible.
For small children, consider holding the bag for them.
Wipe off candy wrappers with sanitizing wipes when you arrive home. (NOTE: Never wipe unpackaged food with wipes.)
Allow children to eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid homemade treats made by strangers.
Allow If your child is at greater risk of complications from COVID-19, contact your doctor before allowing participation in Halloween activities.
For trick-or-treating, reach out to neighbors to discuss ways to ensure 6-foot social distancing, how candy can most safely be distributed, and the need for face coverings.
Refrain from having children select their own treats from a bowl/common container or set up a hand-sanitizing station.
Consider placing treats on porch steps or a table in the driveway with a sign asking children to take only one. Or use other creative ways to distribute treats, such as using a candy “slide” made of PVC pipe, or hanging treats from a wall or fence.

Drive-thru trick-or-treating events and costume costumes are suggested.
Leave treats in the mailboxes of friends and neighbors
Decorating your home and hide treats as an alternative to trick-or-treating.
Holding costume parties or pumpkin carving events or contests online, such as by video conference.

Parties and other events: Limit attendance to 10 or fewer people. It’s also suggested events be held outdoors where social distancing is possible. Avoid activities, such as bobbing for apples, that foster the spread of infection.
It is also strongly recommended that hayrides and haunted houses be canceled
It’s also suggested that people check local health department rules.


• It is recommended that children be in groups of two or more and that an adult accompanies them. ‘Children’ are defined as 14 years of age or younger.
• Trick or Treaters should stay within their own neighborhoods and only go to houses that demonstrate a willingness to participate by turning their porch lights on. ‘Neighborhoods’ are defined as a three-block area in all directions around the child’s home.
• Remind children that they should carry a flashlight, walk on sidewalks and driveways, cross only at corners and to never cross between parked cars. Children should be alert to cars that may be turning into or backing out of driveways.
• Children should have all of their candy checked by an adult before they eat anything.
• Motorists are encouraged to drive cautiously.
