Halloween and COVID-19

Published: 10/08/20


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released guidance for Halloween. This guidance can be found here. COVID-19 continues to spread within Jefferson County, and some alterations to the normal trick-or-treating process are needed.

Jefferson County Department of Health suggests the following actions:

  • Participate in one way trick-or-treating with individually wrapped goodie bags lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance.
  • Make sure to wear facial coverings under costume masks. Unfortunately, costume masks are made of very thin material, and may not provide protection to the wearer and to those around them that a cloth mask would.
  • Avoid large indoor gatherings as this can dramatically increase the spread of COVID-19.
  • If larger events occur, outdoors in the open air is safer. Additionally, facial coverings and social distancing should be utilized to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
To further encourage safe social distancing practices during Halloween, JCDH has created a printable image that residents can display. Download it here.
