The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has provided guidance for Halloween activities during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Please review the guidelines for options on safely celebrating Halloween this year which includes activities considered as high, moderate and low risk:

Local families are deciding how best to celebrate Halloween given the challenges that the pandemic presents. Some families are deciding against Trick or Treating while others are planning to participate. The Village has designated the hours of 3:00 to 7:00 pm on Halloween (Saturday, October 31st) for Trick or Treating. Please leave your porch light on if you would like Trick or Treaters to ring your doorbell for candy. If you prefer not to hand out candy this year, you may post a notice (see links to two options below) in the window or on the door of your home to indicate that you are NOT participating:

However you choose to celebrate this year, please remember to practice social distancing and to wear a face mask. 

The CDC urges you not to use a costume mask as a substitute for a cloth mask unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers your mouth and nose and doesn’t leave gaps around your face. Also, do not wear a costume mask over a cloth mask because it can be dangerous if the costume mask makes it hard to breathe. Instead, consider using a Halloween-themed cloth mask.
