Best Practices for a Safe and Fun 2020 Halloween
For Trick or Treaters:
- Porch/Outdoor Light On = Trick or Treat here!
- Porch/Outdoor Light Off = Maybe next year!
- Stay with your family or “pod”
- Practice social distancing (keep at least 6 feet apart from other groups)
- Stay in your immediate neighborhood
- Do not enter someone else’s home
- Use hand sanitizer
- Wear a cloth or surgical mask (costume masks do not provide protection)
- Avoid Trick or Treating if you or anyone in your household isn’t feeling well, has a fever, or is under quarantine
- Only accept candy that is in factory-sealed packaging
For Candy Givers:
- Porch Light On = Trick or Treat here!
- Porch Light Off = Maybe next year!
- Wear a cloth or surgical mask
- Candy/items should be factory sealed
- Consider spreading out treats on a table or prepare individually sealed bags ahead of time to avoid hands in bowls
- Limit treat choices
- Maintain social distancing (wave to the kids from a distance or from behind a door)
- Provide hand sanitizer for trick or treaters
Alternatives to Trick or Treating, from the NJ Department of Health:
- Virtual activities such as online costume parties.
- Drive through events where individuals remain in their vehicles and drive through an area/neighborhood with Halloween displays.
- Carving pumpkins with family.
- Dressing up homes and yards with Halloween themed decorations.
- Halloween themed movie nights with family.
