Trick or Treat?

The City encourages residents to follow public health safety guidelines this Pandemic Halloween. 

Find suggestions of creative ways to enjoy Halloween safely on the Johnson County Public Health website: Recommendations to Reduce the Risk of Spreading COVID-19.

If you choose to welcome trick-or-treaters to your door, turn on outside lights (that's the signal that you are participating). Trick-or-treaters should avoid houses that do not have outside lights on. Trick-or-Treat night is Saturday, October 31, 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.

A few of the precautions recommended by Johnson County Public Health:

  • If you are sick, or you have been in contact with someone who is sick with COVID-19 or has symptoms of COVID-19, do not participate.
  • Wear a mask over your mouth and nose. A Halloween mask does not offer appropriate protection.
  • Avoid small spaces that do not allow for distancing of six feet.
  • Stay at least six feet away from those who do not live in your home.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands often.

Stay safe!
