Halloween / Trick-or-Treating Advice from the State of Vermont

  • Keep a safe 6-foot distance between your family and other people who don’t live in your household. Bring a flashlight so you’re visible in the dark. You can get creative if you’re giving out candy. Some ideas are to have bags ready to grab on your front steps, or slide the treats down a candy slide.
  • Make sure you and your family are wearing a face mask or covering when you go out. Find a fun way to make it part of your costume. But don’t wear a costume mask over your face mask, which could make it harder to breathe.
  • Keep your group small, and consider skipping crowded indoor parties. If you’re trick-or-treating and one street or neighborhood seems too busy, skip to the next one.
