Recommended Best Practices For Community Members 
• Refrain from having children select their own treats from a bowl/common container or set up a hand-sanitizing station. • Consider lining up individually wrapped goodie bags on porch steps, a table in the driveway, or the edge of the driveway or yard with a sign asking children to take only one. Or use other creative ways to distribute treats, such as using a candy “slide” made of PVC pipe, or hanging treats from a wall or fence. • If you are preparing goodie bags, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 second before and after preparing the bags.

For Parents/Guardians • If taking your children trick-or-treating, limit the number of houses you visit and ask your children to stay as far from treat-givers as possible. For small children, consider holding the bag for them. • Wipe off candy wrappers with sanitizing wipes when you arrive home. (NOTE: Never wipe unpackaged food with wipes.) • Allow children to eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid homemade treats made by strangers. • If your child is at greater risk of complications from COVID-19, contact your doctor before allowing participation in
Halloween activities.
