Tips for a Covid Safe Halloween in Melbourne
Before I get into the technical details, I would like to acknowledge that Halloween and the traditional Trick or Treat activities will be a little different this year.
It is important to remember a few key actions that have been highlighted by the Department of Heath and Human Services, to keep you and the community safe, while still allowing people to enjoy Halloween.
- If you have any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) get tested and stay at home.
- A scary Halloween mask is not a substitute for a face covering.
- Keep at least 1.5 metres between yourself and people you don’t live with.
- Don’t share food or drinks.
- Outdoors, you can catch up with a group of up to ten people
- Traditional trick or treating where you knock on someone’s door is not permitted, however you can have candy available outside of your home e.g. hanging wrapped lollies from a tree or the fence.
- Don’t use communal bowls for lollies or candy.
