Whether you are concerned about the virus spread risk during this year's Halloween, or just plan on creating festive moments with friends and family, read on.
Halloween Party: To Host or Not to Host
Having a costume party in which masks are implemented and adults and children remain 6 feet a party can be successfully done. Ensure that the gathering has a good ventilation system, knowing the locations the attendees are traveling from, ensuring all attendees are obeying CDC guidelines such as wearing a mask (not a Halloween mask), handwashing, keeping distance, and more. Most importantly, limit the number of attendees as much as possible. Outdoor gatherings tend to be a lot safer than indoor gatherings.
All in all, hosting a small costume party falls into a moderate risk activity. We highly recommend getting a full cleaning of your house or recommending a halloween maid from Maid OK to a friend as well. Feel free to contact us with any inquiries regarding Halloween cleaning before and after hosting a small COVID-safe gathering.
Carving pumpkins or decorating pumpkins with friends or members of your family fall into lower-risk activities. We highly recommend carving or decorating pumpkins outside as well in order to keep higher ventilation.
What to Avoid
As you can assume, trick-or-treating is out of the question. We ask that you avoid trick-or-treating "where treats are handed to children who go door to door", attending costume parties, hayrides, indoor haunted houses, and attending rural fall festivals outside your community.
