Halloween Safety in the time of COVID-19

From the Healthy Schools Newsletter 
The BC Centre for Disease Control has some tips for staying safe on Halloween this year:

  • Wash your hands before you go out, when you get home, and before eating treats
  • Keep to your local neighbourhood
  • Trick-or-treat in a small social group, stick to six people
  • Be more outside, than inside
  • Skip Halloween parties
  • Use tongs, a baking sheet or make a candy slide to give more space when handing out candy
  • Wear a non-medical mask that covers your nose and mouth when handing out treats
  • If you’re unable to sit outside to hand out treats, clean and disinfect doorbells and knobs, handrails, and any other high touch surface often during the evening
  • Turn off your porch light and stay at home if you are sick or self-isolating
