The provincial government has issued the following guidance with regard to Halloween in the COVID-19 pandemic. Council encourages everyone to follow this guidance during any Halloween activities.
Halloween guidance in Yellow level
Residents in regions at the Yellow level can celebrate Halloween with door-to-door trick-or-treating provided Public Health advice is followed.
Halloween guidance includes:
- if children go door-to-door, they should avoid contact with anyone in their bubble who is at higher risk for several days following Halloween;
- informal indoor and outdoor celebrations are permitted with a maximum of 50 people but a list of participants must be maintained; and
- any business, organization or group that plans an event, including malls, are required to have an operational plan for any Halloween activities, must keep a list of participants, and must ensure the use of masks in public spaces and ensure that physical distancing is practised.
As stated in the attached, this guidance may change based on the COVID-19 situation. Please check the Department of Health website regularly for information updates that may become available.
Thank you and have a Safe and Fun Halloween.
