Halloween 2020 Safety Guidelines
Halloween is Saturday, October 31. This year, Halloween will look different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, pending guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Village of Plainfield would like to share the following safety guidelines.
Trick-or-Treating hours are 4-8 p.m.
If you choose to hand out candy, consider options for contact-free candy distribution and please turn on your porch lights.
If you do not wish to participate, please make sure your porch lights are turned off. The Village has also created a flyer that you can print and post in your window or door so that others know you are not participating. (here)
Refrain from participating in trick-or-treating if you are feeling unwell, if someone in your house is unwell, if you are awaiting COVID-19 test results, if you have recently returned from travel toa hotspot state, or if you know that you have been exposed to COVID-19.
If you decide to take your child/children trick-or-treating, wear a face covering and incorporate face coverings or masks into costumes to help prevent the spread of germs.
Trick-or-treat as a household and maintain social distancing from other groups.
Make sure that trick-or-treaters have a clear field of vision and wear light colors or put reflective tape on their costumes.
Be careful when crossing streets and check both directions for cars.
Do not enter any homes.
Check all treats in a well-lit area after returning home and only eat unopened candy that is in the original packaging.
Respect others and their property.
