Tips for a Safer Halloween – WA Health Department

October 5th, 2020

by Katrina Brooke

Many of the traditional ways in which we celebrate Halloween involve contact with non household members in large group settings. This year, it is important to plan early and identify safer alternatives to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. The Department of Health is offering the following considerations to help protect individuals and communities.

General Considerations
Regardless of how you choose to celebrate Halloween, it is important to keep the following in mind:

1. Wear a cloth face covering. Make sure the face covering fits snugly over your nose and
mouth.

2. Avoid confined spaces. Outdoor activities are safer than indoor activities. If
participating in an outdoor event is not possible, and you choose to attend an indoor
event, avoid crowded, poorly ventilated, and fully enclosed indoor spaces. Increase
ventilation by opening windows and doors to the extent that is safe and feasible based
on the weather.

3. Avoid close contact with people outside of your household. Stay at least 6 feet away
from all other people who are not part of your own household.

4. Wash or sanitize your hands often. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds,
especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or
sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains
at least 60% alcohol.

5. Stay home if you are sick or were recently exposed to someone with COVID-19. If you
are sick, have symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in contact with someone who has
been diagnosed with COVID-19, stay home and away from others.
