Utahns Come Up with Creative Solutions to Celebrate Halloween Safely
With most counties in the state in the high COVID-19 transmission index, health leaders are encouraging people to skip trick-or-treating this year. USU Professor of Consumer Sciences Kathy Riggs gives advice on having fun while staying safe this halloween.
How to Stay Safe on Halloween
Whatever route you go, follow CDC guidelines.
Wear a face covering.
Stay 6 feet apart.
Remember that once you’re indoors in close proximity, it’s best to protect yourself with a mask.
Ask your neighbors ahead of time if they’ll be handing out candy this year so you can all be on the same page.
Set individually bagged candy on a table outdoors.
Ways to celebrate if you’re skipping out on trick-or-treating:
- Have a movie night.
- Decorate the inside or outside of your home.
- Walk around the neighborhood and check out all the fun, spooky displays.
