Remember to drive with caution and pay extra attention to sidewalks and crosswalks, trick or treaters are out and about!
Trick or Treating:
- Don't go trick-or-treating if feeling ill, even if symptoms are minor
- Choose costumes that allow a non-medical mask to be worn underneath - make sure you can see and breathe comfortably
- Minimize contact with others: trick-or-treat with your family or cohort, remain within your community, and stay 2 metres apart
- Avoid touching doorbells or railings: call "trick or treat" from 2 metres away, knock instead of using doorbells, use hand sanitizer after touching surfaces
- Wash hands and disinfect packages before eating candy
- Wear glow sticks or reflective clothing so drivers can easily see you
Handing out candy:
- Don't hand out candy if feeling ill or isolating
- Wear a non-medical mask that fully covers your nose and mouth
- Ask trick-or-treaters to knock or call out instead of ringing the doorbell
- Use tongs to hand out pre-packaged candy to avoid handling treats
Find creative ways to maintain distance from trick-or-treaters:
- Hand out treats from your driveway or front lawn, if weather permits
- Set up a table or desk to help keep yourself distanced
- Make candy bags and space them out on a table or blanket; don't leave out self-serve bowls of bulk candy
- Build a candy slide, candy catapult or other fun, non-touch delivery methods
- In a window or front door hang up the Open for Halloween poster if you are handing out candy and the Sorry, no candy poster if you are not handing out candy.
