- COVID-19 Prevention Guidance for Halloween: To have a safe Halloween celebration amid the COVID-19 pandemic, health officials recommend outdoor trick-or-treating in small groups and discourage any indoor parties. Loudoun County Health Director Dr. Goodfriend recommends:
- Trick-or-treating outdoors in small groups or hosting a small outdoor gathering.
- Incorporating a face covering into a child’s costume (over the age of 2).
- If giving out candy, consider individual bags to hand out or a contactless option such as a candy chute.
- Washing your hands before going trick-or-treating or handing out candy. Hand sanitizer should be used while trick-or-treating or handing out candy when soap and water aren’t available.
- Maintaining physical distancing from people not in your household or who have not been vaccinated.
