Halloween 2020

Be spooky, but safe! Pledge to uphold the Kenosha County Halloween 2020 Safe House Guidelines to keep your family and others safe. 

If you choose to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters, download one or both of our flyers — available here and here — and post them on your front door to demonstrate your commitment to a healthy Halloween.

And whether you decide to go trick-or-treating, or to give out treats, please follow the recommendations below.

For trick-or-treaters:

  • Stay home if you're sick.
  • Only trick-or-treat with people from your household.
  • Stay local. Avoid going to other parts of town or to another city.
  • Stay 6 feet apart from others not in your household.
  • Wear a mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose.
  • Do not reach your hands into the bowl to grab candy.
  • Hand sanitize frequently while out and about.
  • When you get home, wash hands before eating!
  • Get the flu vaccine before Halloween.

For households handing out treats:

  • Do not hand out candy if you are sick.
  • Wear a mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose.
  • Have only one person hand out individually wrapped candy while wearing gloves, OR leave individual grab bags or paper cups filled with goodies outside your door for children to take.
  • Use duct tape to mark 6-foot lines in front of your home, leading to your 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.
  • Get the flu vaccine before Halloween.

And for everyone looking to celebrate Halloween responsibly:

  • Avoid parties and celebrations — indoors and outdoors — with others who live outside of your household.
  • Avoid happy hours and socializing in bars.
  • Avoid any unmasked event.
  • Stay home if you're sick.
  • Always stay 6 feet apart from others not from your household.

Let's all do our part to have a healthy Halloween 2020!
