A Safe Halloween 2020

Center for Disease Control (The CDC) Recommended Guidelines for a Safe Halloween

  • A costume mask should not be a substitute for a cloth mask.
  • A costume mask should not be used unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers the mouth and nose and doesn’t leave gaps around the face.
    • It may be a good idea to come up with a Halloween-themed cloth mask.
  • If screaming will occur, greater distancing is advised.
    • The greater the distance, the lower the risk of spreading a respiratory virus.
The following Halloween Activities have been judged as low, moderate, and high risk for contracting COVID-19:
  • Low-risk Activities
    • Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household, or outside, at a safe distance with neighbors or friends
    • Decorating your home
    • Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance
    • Having a scavenger hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house
  • Moderate-risk Activities
    • Participating in one-way trick-or-treating where individually wrapped goodie bags are lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance (such as at the end of a driveway or at the edge of a yard)
    • Having a small group, outdoor, open-air costume parade where people are distanced with more than 6 feet apart
    • Attending a costume party outdoors where protective masks are used and people can remain more than 6 feet apart
  • High-risk Activities
    • Participating in traditional trick-or-treating where treats are handed to children who go door to door
    • Having trunk-or-treat where treats are handed out from trunks of cars lined up in large parking lots
    • Attending crowded costume parties held indoors
    • Going to an indoor haunted house where people may be crowded together and screaming
    • Going on hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household

Masks Mandated in Indiana through October 17th

Face Covering Requirement

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb will order a statewide mask requirement through October 17th. The reasons for this requirement:
  • To get children back to school
  • To keep businesses open
  • A statewide increase in COVID-19 positive cases
  • A statewide increase in number of Hoosiers hospitalized for COVID-19
  • An increase in cases and positivity rate in neighboring states
The mandate will be for anyone 8 years and older in indoor public spaces, commercial entities or transportation services, or in outside public spaces when you cannot social distance.
