JCDHE releases Halloween guidance for safer celebrations

The COVID-19 pandemic means holidays will be different this year. Halloween has some good celebration options since many activities can be outside and mask wearing is part of the holiday, but there are still some risks with COVID-19 circulating. The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment has tips to prevent illness, slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, and still retain some of the spooky and sweet flavor of Halloween.

When planning your Halloween activities, follow the fundamentals of COVID-19 prevention:

  • Limit close contact with other people. 
  • Stay with people you are already in contact with.
  • Wear a face covering.
  • Practice good hand hygiene.

Get additional tips on safer ways to trick-or-treat and ideas on other Halloween activities to minimize the risk of disease transmission.
