2020 Halloween

In accordance with CDC guidance for trick-or-treating which classifies it as a high-risk activity for the spread of COVID-19, the Village discourages residents from participating. 

If you and your family decide to take part in trick-or-treating anyway, the Village has established the following guidelines: 

  • Trick-or-treat hours are from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.
  • A costume mask does not take place of a face cover.  
  • Do not trick or treat at homes that do not have their porch light on, or a sign stating that the residence is not participating in trick-or-treating. 
  • Trick-or-treat with household members only.
  • Wait for other groups to leave a home before approaching. 

The Police Department will be patrolling as usual; however, both Police and Fire will not hand out treats due to the risk of COVID spread. Please respect your neighbors who decide to trick-or-treat, as well as those who choose to refrain from participating in this activity. 

Instead of trick or treating, consider:

  • Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household, or at a safe distance with neighbors or friends, and then displaying them,
  • Decorating your house, apartment, or living space,
  • Organizing a Halloween scavenger hunt with members of your household around your home, or where children are given lists of Halloween-themed items to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house at a distance,
  • Organizing a virtual Halloween costume contest,
  • Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with.
