Halloween Safety Checklist and Events Portal

Halloween Safety Checklist and Events Portal

We know the holiday season this year will be a difficult time for many this year, but with Halloween this week, it is important for everyone to make a plan for how to celebrate safely in the time of COVID-19.

Visit for a list of events throughout the City for children and families to make their Halloween plan. You can also register your business or organization’s event to share how you plan to celebrate safely and to be included in the site’s event search. Be sure to check out the Halloweek Toolkit on the website for safety guidelines and signage for your home or business.


  1. Masks aren’t just for trick-or-treaters this year! Everyone-including candy givers-should wear a face covering (multi-layered, covering the mouth and nose, without gaps around the face).
  2. Leave a light on or hang a Halloweek sign in your window to let others know your house is giving out candy safely.
  3. Handing out candy? Please socially distance and have hand sanitizer, too.
  4. Trick or treating? Stay on the move! Less congregating means more houses and more candy.
  5. Ensure there’s all treats and no tricks. Please don’t reach into candy bowls while trick or treating, and eat candy only at home after washing your hands.
  6. No Haunted Houses. They are truly spooky and dangerous this year.
  7. Keep your candy crew small. Trick-or-treating groups should be 6 people or less.
  8. No house parties large or small this year.

Thank you for taking the steps to celebrate safely! Let’s make a plan and keep everyone safe, and happy Halloween!
