Every holiday this year we’ve had to approach knowing things aren’t going to celebrated as carefree as years prior. The past month has been filled with the uncertainty of whether our kids would be able to dress up in their costumes and fill up their bags with chips and chocolate. The Ontario government has given a green light to the little ones and their parents who want to go door-knocking, but have provided some tips for a safe Halloween:

Stay In Your Area

Parents and kids have been strongly encouraged to stay within their area and not to travel to other neighbourhoods to participate.

Wear a Mask

Costume masks are not masks – both kids and those who are handing out candy are advised to wear a mask under their costume to protect themselves and others.

Stay In Your Bubble

Only trick or treat with family members. Make sure to keep distance from others, that means not congregating on porches, driveways and other areas with others.
