Halloween fun is still permitted to take place during the coronavirus pandemic, but trick-or-treaters need to be safe.
Only members of the same household should be within six feet of one another, everyone should wear a mask and contactless candy distribution of individually wrapped candies or Halloween grab-and-go bags is recommended.
