City COVID Recommendations
The Denver Department of Public Health & Environment (DDPHE) released guidelines for keeping families safe this Halloween.
“Halloween 2020 will be unlike any other in recent history. We’re dealing with a global pandemic. And for most of us, it means uncertain times. But if we are careful, if we maintain proper social distancing, if we wear our face coverings and use sanitizer, we can maintain a little bit of our traditions and enjoy a fun evening with loved ones,” says Robert McDonald, Executive Director of DDPHE and Denver’s Public Health Administrator.
Among the recommendations from DDPHE:
- Trick or treat with people in your household, keeping at least 6 feet from others not in your household
- Those who are immune compromised or not feeling well should not participate.
- Bring hand sanitizer and have children use it frequently. Remind children not to touch their faces and wash hands immediately upon returning home.
- Wear a mask when handing out candy. Avoid having lots of little hands reaching inside a bowl. A table with spaced out treats keeps contact to a minimum.
- Disinfect doorbells, buzzers, and other high-touch surfaces at the end of the evening.
- Costume masks are not a substitute for cloth face coverings unless they are made with two or more layers of breathable fabric. As a second mask may make it difficult to breathe, incorporate a face mask into the costume.
- Keep Halloween parties outdoors and to less than 10 people. Use single serving food and drinks instead of shared bowls or buffets.
| Before trick or treating or attending a Halloween party, we strongly encourage you to visit denvergov.org/dphe to review all recommendations. |
