Staying safe on Halloween during COVID-19

Halloween is a really fun time for kids, but this year won't look the same for trick-or-treaters in our school neighbourhoods.

This Halloween, we need to make sure we all continue to closely follow the recommendations of the provincial health officer and Fraser Health's chief medical health officer.

This includes:

  • Only celebrating with your immediate household members 
  • Maintaining physical distance of two metres from others
  • Refraining from gathering in homes and hosting or attending private parties
  • Practicing good hand hygiene and appropriate cough etiquette

In recent weeks, the number of active COVID-19 cases in the Fraser Health region has increased considerably.

If you choose to trick or treat this year, please do it safely. The BC Centre for Disease Control has shared some precautions for trick-or-treating. Click the link for more details.

The safest thing to do is stay home – there are other ways to celebrate, and parents are encouraged to get creative with alternative, at-home Halloween activities, such as a backyard scavenger hunt for treats and goodies or watching some scary movies. This has the added benefit of giving your children treats they actually like and avoiding any they may be allergic to.

If you are not feeling well or are self-isolating, please stay home and ensure your porch light is off.
