[ARCHIVED] Dallas County Public Health Committee Releases Guidelines for a Safe Halloween

Small jack-o-lantern on the ground

Halloween has always been a great time to get together, dress up, and go trick-or-treating.  This year requires extra measures to keep you and your little ghosts and goblins safe, but still have a fun time.  Here are a few guidelines that the Dallas County Public Health Committee has released in this press release:

  • Gatherings with non-houshold members should be fewer than ten (10) people, and maintain the 6-foot social distancing from one another to limit your exposure.
  • Wear face coverings. Halloween masks are not sufficient to prevent the spread of germs.
  • Trick-or-treating and other like activities are considered unsafe as it is very difficult to prevent the spread of germs from handling candy and other fun prizes.
  • Try virtual events such as online costume fashion shows and contests.
  • Organize a car parade for your neighborhood.
  • Decorate your yard for the holiday.
  • create a scavenger hunt or treasure hunt around the house for treats and prizes for your your children.
  • DON'T FORGET! The HP Library has several virtual activities, crafts, and story times during the month of October, so be sure to check out the Library's calendar of events.
