Halloween season is almost here, and many Hillsborough County residents have questions about how to celebrate safely with family and friends.
Amid the ongoing pandemic, the 2020 spooky season may look a little different. Just a few extra precautions can help reduce the risk to everyone. In addition to the annual safety tips shared by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the CDC has provided safety measures you can take to celebrate the season more safely.
Public health experts say residents should refrain from gatherings of more than 10 people. Face coverings are to be worn when the 6-foot social distancing guidelines cannot be met. The CDC shares that traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses. It has created a detailed list of activities and risk levels for residents to utilize as they plan their Halloween fun. The CDC reminds those who are planning events to celebrate the holiday to take extra considerations. If we work together as a community, Halloween can still be fun for everyone.
