Preparing for a Pandemic Halloween

In many neighborhoods across the United States, Halloween decorations have begun to appear. If you've been wondering whether Halloween celebrations and trick-or-treating are possible when the COVID-19 virus is still spreading across the country and the world, you may be interested in the Halloween guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control:

Low risk activities:

  • Carving or decorating pumpkins at home and displaying them
  • Carving or decorating pumpkins outside, at a safe distance, with neighbors or friends
  • Decorating your house, apartment, or living space
  • Holding a virtual Halloween costume contest
  • Having a Halloween movie night at home with your family or roommates
  • Having a Halloween scavenger hunt with lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while walking outdoors, at a safe distance from other participants
  • Having a scavenger-hunt style trick-or-treat event with your household members in or around your home instead of trick-or-treating from house to house

Moderate risk activities:

  • Participating in one-way trick-or-treating. Individually wrapped treats are lined up for families to take while remaining at a safe social distance (end of a driveway or at the edge of a yard)
  • Small group, outdoor, open-air costume parades or parties with participants remaining at safe social distances (six feet apart)
  • Going to an open-air, one-way, walk-through haunted forest where appropriate mask use is enforced, and people can remain more than six feet apart (if screaming is likely, distances should be increased)
  • Having an outdoor Halloween movie night with local family friends with people spaced at least six feet apart (again, if screaming is likely, distances should be increased)

With a little planning, everyone can have a safe and fun Halloween.
