Halloween Guidelines For Connecticut Have Been Released

The Connecticut Department of Public Health released a new series of guidelines Thursday detailing how residents should celebrate Halloween this year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Events that DPH are telling people to avoid are:

  • Traditional trick-or-treating where treats are handed to children who go door to door
  • Large parties that exceed 25 people indoors and 150 people outdoors
  • Large Halloween-themed parades where physical distancing cannot be maintained
  • Indoor haunted houses where people may be crowded together and screaming
  • Hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household

Some events that DPH says families should consider are:

  • Host drive-by Halloween events
  • Prepare candy scavenger hunts at homes with household members
  • Host virtual Halloween events
  • Have a Halloween movie night with the people in your household
