COVID-19 Guidelines from Grand County Public Health for Attendees:

  • Social distancing helps to reduce disease transmission. Please maintain social distancing of 6 feet or more between individuals or family groups.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes and wash hands or use hand sanitizer frequently.
  • Face coverings reduce airborne transmission and are encouraged even outside, especially if there is a breeze. We highly recommend face coverings for everyone over 3 years of age during the event when within 6′ distance of non-household members.
    • COVID-approved face coverings fit snugly around the nose and mouth and are only semi-porous (meaning that they are not just mesh).
    • Decorative Halloween masks may be worn over the COVID-approved mask but not in place of the COVID-mask.
    • If wearing a costume mask over a cloth mask makes it hard to breathe, consider a Halloween-themed cloth mask as part of the costume instead.
  • Please conduct a self-assessment for you and your children prior to attending the event. If anyone is symptomatic or has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, please do not attend the event, isolate, and consult your doctor.
    • Possible symptoms: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, nausea/vomiting, and diarrhea.
  • Candy will be handed out to trick or treaters outside each participating business. There will not be any grab and go candy bowls available.

COVID-19 Guidelines from Grand County Public Health for Participating Businesses:

  • Please enact social distancing measures at your business if crowds occur.
    • Utilize signs, markings, ropes, and/or cones as needed to ensure trick or treaters are properly social distancing while waiting in line.
  • Staff should maintain as much distance as possible from guests whenever possible.
  • Have hand sanitizer available wherever possible, especially in high-traffic areas.
  • Enhance cleaning and sanitation of common touch points, such as doorknobs.
  • Perform symptom screening on employees, staff, and volunteers handing out candy.
    • Anyone who is symptomatic (or who has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19) should go home, isolate, and consult a doctor.
    • Possible symptoms: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, nausea/vomiting, and diarrhea.
  • Do not have grab and go candy bowls or containers.
  • Have one or more person(s) at your business be the designated candy giver(s). Those individuals should stand at the door or preferably outside the door of the business.
    • When children arrive, the candy giver should pass candy to trick or treaters outside the business. Trick or treaters should not enter the business premises for health and safety reasons.
    • If the candy giver is standing inside waiting for children to arrive, consider having a second individual be the door opener so that the candy giver does not need to open the door.
    • Designated candy giver(s) must wear gloves and a COVID-approved face covering around their nose and mouth.
      • COVID-approved face coverings fit snugly around the nose and mouth and are only semi-porous (meaning that they are not just mesh).
      • Decorative Halloween masks may be worn over the COVID-approved mask but not in place of the COVID-mask.
    • Designated candy giver(s) should avoid contact as much as possible AND maintain 6′ distancing. Be creative on candy delivery options. Consider these examples:
      • Put out individual treat bags that are easy to grab.
      • Use a plastic slide, cardboard tubes, tongs, extension pinchers, PVC pipes, or other devices to deliver candy from a distance.
      • Put out a tray with candy that is sanitized between groups.
    • Use pre-packaged candy only. Shortly before the event begins, candy should be poured directly from the bag into a large bowl and should not be touched by anyone but the designated gloved or tonged candy giver.
