Stay Safe This Halloween

Stay Safe and Keep Halloween Spooky!

Halloween is a favorite holiday among many here at Boyk Law. With creative costumes, trick-or-treating, ghoulishly-delicious treats, and fun times at local haunted houses, this celebration is normally a time for fun and heart-pounding thrills.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things this year, and Halloween will be no different. This year, we are all wondering how to stay healthy and still have some fun. Hopefully, these tips and helpful resources from the Ohio  Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Halloween and Costume Association will point you and your loved ones have a spooky and safe Halloween.

Stay Up To Date:

Activities to Avoid:

  • Large gatherings like big Halloween parties, hayrides, and haunted houses.
  • Trick-or-treating with large groups.
  • Distributing or accepting homemade treats from people outside your household.
  • Games like bobbing for apples that encourage the spread of infection.

Fun and Safe Alternatives:

  • Hold a drive-through or drive-in trick-or-treat event.
  • Leave factory-packaged treats in the mailboxes of friends and neighbors.
  • Decorate your home and hide treats around your yard for your family.
  • Have a neighborhood pet parade.
  • Create a fairytale forest in neighboring woods or a local park.
  • Host a neighborhood drive-in movie.
  • Have a scary movie marathon at home.
  • Host a spooky face mask decorating contest.
  • Show off your costumes to friends and family via social media.
  • Hold a drive-by costume or car-decorating contest.
  • Host a virtual costume party and pumpkin carving contest.
  • Host a neighborhood-wide, outdoor pumpkin carving contest.

General Safety Recommendations:

  • As always, wear a face covering and stay 6 feet away from people who are not from your household. Please stay home if you are sick. (NOTE: Face coverings should never be placed on children younger than 2 or anyone who cannot easily remove them.)
  • Use sanitizer often, especially after coming into contact with frequently touched surfaces and before eating candy.
  • Consider the people in your household who may be at greater risk of complications if COVID- 19 is brought into the home, such as those with certain health conditions, women who are pregnant, or older family members.
