Recommendations for a Safe & Fun Halloween

In this unplanned, pandemic time in our community, the City is offering recommendations to ensure Halloween will be as safe and fun as possible.

  • Keep your family and kids in a group and do not mix and with other families and kids.  Maintain a 6-foot distance if waiting to approach a house.

  • Candy should be handed out, not presented in a bowl for everyone to put their hand in and choose from.  Alternatively, participating households could set out individualized plastic or paper bags for kids to take individually.

  • Masks and face coverings are encouraged when approaching houses to accept candy being handed out. They are also recommended for those handing out candy or when withing 6 feet of those outside your family or social circle.

  • Houses wishing to participate should turn their outdoor lights on.

  • If anyone in your family or social circle have COVID-19, you should not participate in any Halloween activities to avoid exposing others to the virus.

  • The Iowa Department of Health offers additional guidance that can be found HERE

Being cautious and practicing social distancing will make Halloween and safer event for all!
