TRICK OR TREATING

  • Keep your distance from other groups. Take turns and wait until any group ahead is gone.
  • Knock or call “trick-or-treat” instead of pushing doorbells.
  • Use hand sanitizer often while out and clean your hands after handling candy treats you bring home.
  • Stay home if you or anyone in your household isn’t feeling well.
  • If you start to feel unwell, return home as soon as possible.

HANDING OUT CANDY

  • Do not hand out candy if anyone in your household isn’t feeling well or is isolating.
  • Wear a non-medical mask while handing out candy.
  • Hand out pre-packaged candy and use tongs to help keep a distance.
