- When trick or treating or participating in other Halloween activities with people outside your household, wear a mask. You can make it fun by making your mask part of your costume, but when it comes to slowing the spread of COVID-19, a costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask. Also, do not wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult.
- If you’re heading out to trick-or-treat this year, or planning to put candy out for trick-or treaters, remember to avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters and give treats away outdoors if possible. Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take, wash hands before handling treats, and wear a mask.
- If you’re planning to participate in activities like decorating and carving pumpkins; visiting an orchard, forest or corn maze; attending an outdoor scavenger hunt; or hosting an outdoor costume party, remember to wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet from others who do not live with you, and wash your hands frequently.
