Covid and Halloween: A High Risk Holiday | Golden Rules Gal

Category: Halloween Etiquette Pandemiquette

Halloween is the perfect holiday to happen during a pandemic because you can wear your costume every day of the week:  it’s called a mask.  Avoid making it a John Carpenter Halloween.  The film is a masterpiece, but getting this virus will be your worst nightmare. Enjoy the spirit of Halloween but please do it safely.

Low Risk Halloween Activities

  1. Carve and decorate pumpkins with only your household.  If you do it with neighbors,  do it outside and at a safe distance.
  2. Have virtual Halloween costume parties.
  3. Do a ‘spooky’ family movie night at home.
  4. Consider pre-wrapping candy in cellophane and leave it on your front porch for trick or treaters.
  5. Have a candy giveaway at home from room to room.  Knock knock, who’s there?  Snickers, Reese’s Pieces, Milky Way…

High Risk Halloween Activities

  1. Costume parties held indoors.
  2. Haunted houses or movie parties with crowds.
  3. Trick-or-treating with outsiders from house to house.
