Most of the Lancaster county’s towns and townships will be holding Trick-or-Treat night tomorrow night between the hours of 6-8 PM with the exception of Christiana Borough, who plans a Trunk or Treat event tonight at Borough Hall from 6-8 PM
So… how do we get through tomorrow night’s festivities safe-and-sound? How can we possibly make trick-or-treating safer for everyone this year? Well, there are a few things you can do:
Interact with the Kids Safely
- Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters.
- Give out treats outdoors, if possible.
- Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take.
- Wash hands before handling treats.
- Wear a mask.
Wear a mask
- Make your cloth mask part of your costume.
- A costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask.
- Do NOT wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult.
- Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing
Stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you
- Indoors and outdoors, you are more likely to get or spread COVID-19 when you are in close contact with others for a long time.
Wash your hands
- Bring hand sanitizer with you and use it after touching objects or other people.
- Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Parents: supervise young children using hand sanitizer.
- Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home and before you eat any treats.
