For Trick-of-Treating:

  • Adults should accompany young children while they are out.
  • Walk on sidewalks, not the street. Use crosswalks when crossing the street.
  • Always travel in familiar, well-lit areas and stay in groups.
  • After dark, carry a flashlight or glow stick to increase visibility.
  • Phones down, heads up. Be aware of your surroundings.

For Motorists:

  • Drive slowly and stay alert.
  • Watch for children walking across the street or at intersections.
  • Enter and exit driveways slowly, keep eyes out for children.
  • After dark, keep eyes out for trick-or-treaters in dark clothing.
  • New or inexperienced drivers should avoid driving after dark on Halloween.


  • Stay home if you are not feeling well.
  • Consider wearing a mask over your nose and mouth when trick-or-treating and handing out treats.
  • Avoid large gatherings or parties and find ways to trick-or-treat while staying at least 6 feet away from others, including when handing out and accepting treats.
  • Practice frequent hand cleaning - bring a bottle of alcohol-based hand sanitizer with you while trick-or-treating, and use it often.
