Enjoy This Year’s Halloween in Montgomery County, With Some Safety Guidelines
In preparations for this year’s Halloween, last week Montgomery County issued safety guidelines for the fall celebration of all things spooky, writes Hank Flynn for FOX 29.
The guidelines are the same basic guidelines already set by the CDC.
Also in addition to hoping that people follow safety procedures, Pam Lawn, of the Montgomery County Department of Health, has other suggestions that would make this Halloween fun but safe.
“We just have a couple of fun ideas down – set up a candy graveyard, trick-or-treating, reverse trick-or-treating, handing out candy, social distanced parades, boo or ghost people, glow in the dark egg hunts, pumpkin carving,” said Lawn. “There’s just different ideas so the kids can participate in some activities.”
And while there are always plenty of things to be afraid of on Halloween, the pandemic brings a different kind of fear to this beloved holiday. This is why the same guidelines on indoor and outdoor gatherings still apply. Additionally, safety plans have to be approved for trick-or-treats by the county.
If the guidelines become confusing, the Department of Health suggests reminding yourself of the basics: frequent hand washing, wear a mask, and social distancing.
