A message from the Health Unit regarding Halloween:
 
The Health Unit will be using guidance from the Chief Medical Officer of Health to prepare resources for upcoming celebrations (including Halloween and Remembrance Day). The Halloween key messages are:
  • Virtual gatherings or events are safest
  • Outdoor gatherings or events are safer than indoors.
  • Consider fun and creative alternatives to trick or treating, like scavenger hunts and walks to look at neighbourhood decorations or having a themed dinner with household contacts.
  • If you choose to participate in trick or treating:
    • Only go out with members of your direct household
    • Wear a mask/face covering that fits properly – a costume mask is not a substitute for a face covering.
    • Stay 2 metres apart and don’t congregate or linger at doorsteps
    • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer
    • Consider creative ways to hand out treats so that children aren’t reaching into a bucket or bowl to grab treats
  • No matter how you choose to celebrate Halloween, the key is to be COVID-SMART. Resources  will be available on our Website shortly.
