How to Keep Trick or Treat 2020 Safe and Fun

Whatever trick or treat looks like for you and your family this Halloween, here are a few tips to make it safe and fun for everyone:


What would Halloween be without costumes and candy? Keep these social distancing best practices in mind to keep everyone safe.

  • Stay home if sick
  • Trick-or-treat with people you live with
  • Remain 6 feet apart from people not in your household
  • Wear a face mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose (even under/over your Halloween mask)
  • Hand sanitize (with sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol) frequently while out, especially during key times like before eating or after coughing/sneezing
  • Wash your hands as soon as you return home


The traditional Halloween decorations might look a little bit different this year. Check out these tips to create a safe celebration setup for your neighborhood ghosts and monsters.

  • Do not hand out candy if you are sick
  • Wear a face mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose
  • Take the Safe House pledge and register as an official Halloween Safe House
  • Use duct tape to mark 6-foot lines in front of your home and leading to you driveway/front door
  • Position a distribution table between yourself and trick-or-treaters
  • Distribute candy on a disinfected table to eliminate direct contact
  • Wash hands often


If you’re like most parents, safety is always top of mind this time of year. Here are a few tricks to keep your children safe and ensure a fun time is had by all.
