Halloween Information

covid-19 halloween guidance 

Halloween is going to be a little spookier than usual this year! And it's not just because there will be a full moon! 👀 COVID-19 is going to make our Halloween celebrations unique. In addition to traditional Halloween safety measures, we encourage you to follow these safety guidelines:
--Don't go out if you are sick. (Sneezing vampires are frightening for entirely different reasons right now.)

--Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet or approximately 36 fun-size Snickers (don't ask how we know this).

--No Halloween costume is complete without a mask, but every monster on your block should know a costume mask is no replacement for the actual face mask that we wear daily. Be sure to wear at least the face mask.


--Understand that some houses may not participate in trick-or-treating this year – and that's okay.

As a reminder, the City does not have designated trick-or-treat hours. Please be safe, be smart, be a good neighbor and have fun!

City of Livonia COVID-19 Halloween Guidance

Navigating the upcoming Halloween holiday in the time of COVID-19 is different than ever before. The City of Livonia encourages residents participating in Halloween activities this year to keep in mind the following guidance from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in order to safely celebrate the holiday during the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDC considers trick-or-treating a high-risk activity during the pandemic, so please keep these recommendations in mind to ensure a safe, healthy experience for all Livonia residents this Halloween.

Trick or Treaters

- Stay home if you feel sick.
- Trick or treat with people you live with.
- Remain at least six feet apart from people not in your household.
- Wear a face mask covering both your mouth and nose.
- Remember, a Halloween mask does not replace your normal mask or face covering.
- Hand sanitize (with sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol) frequently while out, especially during key times like before eating or after coughing/sneezing.
- Wash your hands as soon as you return home.

HOMEOWNERS / RESIDENTS / PARENTS

- Do not hand out candy if you are sick.
- Wear a face mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose.
- Consider using duct tape to mark 6-foot lines in front of home and leading to driveway/front doorstep.
- Consider a neighborhood costume parade as a way to keep safe space between children.
- Participate in one-way trick or treating.
- Wash hands often.
- Avoid congregating in groups around houses.
- Limit the capacity of events to ensure social distancing.

ONE-WAY TRICK OR TREATING

 - Position a distribution table between yourself and trick or treaters.
- Distribute candy on disinfected surface to eliminate direct contact.
- If you are preparing goodie bags, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after preparing bags.
- Individually wrapped candy or goodie bags should be lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance.
