Halloween Guidelines

Happy Halloween! At this time RI is able to partake in Halloween :)

* Per Gov. Raimondo - Trick or treating is recommended to happen earlier in the day or early evenings*

A few tips and guidelines

---> Keep your group as small as possible. Limit gatherings to no more than 15 people and stick with the same 15 people.

---> Use hand sanitizer frequently

---> Take it outside whenever possible

Remember the three Ws!

Wear a mask that’s at least two layers thick and fits snugly but comfortably over your nose, mouth, and chin without any gaps.

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Or carry and use hand sanitizer that’s at least 60% alcohol.

Watch your distance by staying at least six feet apart from others

*****Stay home and do not hand out candy if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 . Keep your lights off so people know not to come to your door.****

CDC and RI DOH Guidelines links are posted below

Trick-or-treating tips:

*** Leave individually wrapped goodie bags lined up at least six feet from your door for kids to grab and go.

*** Do not hand out candy from a bowl.
