What Are Rhode Island’s Halloween Guidelines During COVID-19?

covid halloween bottaro law firmThis Halloween is a little extra scary and unique with the Rhode Island COVID-19 challenges. We are all struggling right now to keep our kids and families safe. Today, I thought I would try to emphasize some guidelines for Saturday.

  • Trick-or-Treat and celebrate only with people you live with. Any time you’re near people you don’t live with, wear your mask and watch your distance. Do not host or attend a Halloween Party.
  • Stay Home and do not hand out candy if you have COVID-19 symptoms, if you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or if you are in quarantine or isolation
  • Trick-or-Treat before dark so you can keep a safe distance from other trick-or-treaters
  • Remember the 3 W’s!
    • Wear a mask that is at least two layers thick and fits snugly but comfortably over your nose, mouth, and chin without any gaps. Remember Halloween masks do not count as a face covering!
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Or carry and use hand sanitizer that’s at least 60% alcohol.
    • Watch your Distance by staying at least 6 feet apart from others.
  • Trick-or-Treating Tips
    • Leave individually wrapped goodie bags lined up at least six feet from your door for kids to grab and go. Do not hand out candy from a bowl.
    • Go trick-or-treating with your children to make sure they do it safely.

Safe Halloween-Themed Activities

  • Take part in an online pumpkin carving or costume contest.
  • Display Halloween-themed decorations in your home or yard.
  • Organize a neighborhood contest for outdoor Halloween-themed decorations.
  • Plan a Halloween scavenger hunt for people you live with,
  • Decorate your own Halloween or fall-themed face masks.
  • Prepare a Halloween-themed meal or bake Halloween treats for people you live with.
