Halloween This Year: COVID-19

 In Insurance News
If you plan to trick-or-treat, there are ways to make it safer:
  • Wear a cloth mask over your nose and mouth.
  • Incorporate cloth masks into costume designs, if possible.
  • Don’t wear Halloween masks instead of, or on top of, cloth masks.
  • Go in small groups, only with people from your household or bubble.
  • Stay 6 feet apart from other people and groups.
  • When others are getting candy at each house, wait your turn 6 feet away.
  • Consider only visiting homes that are distributing candy outdoors.
  • If neighbors wrap individual bags of candy and space them out on a table, kids can grab them.
  • If neighbors place candy directly into trick-or-treat bags, kids will touch fewer things.
  • Only eat candy outside if you’re socially distanced from others and have used hand sanitizer first.
  • Use hand sanitizer often, then wash your hands when you return home.
If you plan to give candy to trick-or-treaters:
  • Wear a cloth mask over your nose and mouth.
  • Don’t offer candy in a bowl, because many people will put their hands into it.
  • Put wrapped candy into small individual bags, so children won’t all touch the same items.
  • Set up a table outside, so people don’t have to touch your doorbell or front door handle.
  • Place individually wrapped bags of candy on the table, spaced apart, for kids to take themselves.
  • Have kids open their trick-or-treat bags, so you can drop in candy.
  • To add more distance between you and kids, consider using kitchen tongs to place candy in bags.
