Halloween During COVID-19

Time flies! We are welcoming our second Halloween during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Enjoy your favourite Halloween activities safely by taking some simple precautions. Help spread scary vibes and not COVID-19 this Halloween by taking some simple precautions:

  • Outdoors Halloween parties with no more than 20 people (vaccinated or unvaccinated) with 2 metres between households.
  • Indoor gatherings are limited to 10 fully vaccinated people from 2 households you interact with regularly.
  • Don’t trick-or-treat, hand out treats or go to a party if you’re sick, even if symptoms are minor.
  • Avoid touching doorbells or railings – yell “trick or treat” from 2 metres away instead.
  • Choose costumes that allow a mask to be worn.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands frequently, and before eating or handling candy.
