Halloween is Oct. 31
Gov. Murphy: Halloween Activities can proceed
On October 5, Governor Murphy announced that Halloween activities could proceed during this time of heightened health precautions. Residents should follow the state Department of Health guidance .
Here are some highlights for Hazlet's Trick-or-Treaters:
- Individuals should not participate in Halloween activities if they or a household member has a known exposure to COVID-19, are sick/symptomatic, or has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and has not yet met the criteria for discontinuing isolation.
- Trick-or-Treaters must properly wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth (costume masks do not count), should remain near their homes, limit the total number of houses they visit, travel only with immediate family members, and should comply with social distancing guidelines.
- Residents giving out candy should distribute commercially packaged treats in a way that does not involve multiple children repeatedly reaching their hands into the same bowl. Placing treats on a tray is a good example of how to safely do it.
