Lafayette Parish officials offer safety guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19 while trick-or-treating.

Posted: Oct 1, 2020 4:31 PM

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has deemed traditional trick -or -treating a high-risk activity.
Lafayette Parish officials would like to offer the following safety guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19 while trick-or-treating.

•Don’t wear gloves when handing out candy. Offer pre-wrapped goody bags or sanitize hands in between house visits.
•Do not participate in Halloween festivities if you are feeling ill.
•Only Trick-or- Treat with members of your household and within your own neighborhood, if possible.
•Halloween masks are not a substitute for real masks. Please ensure that proper face coverings are worn while out in public.
•Avoid activities in which germs can spread easily such as bobbing for apples or close-quartered haunted houses.
•Consider alternatives to Trick or Treating such as CDC’s Zombie Survival Scavenger Hunt or Drive-Thru Trick or Treating
•Recognize official Halloween times as 6:00 to 8:00 PM
