Halloween 2020, with a full moon and Saturday celebration, will be like no other. Whatever Halloween looks like for you and your family this year, the Township of Morris Health Dept. put together a few tips to make trick or treating safe and fun for everyone. Also, below you will find the CDC’s list of safer, alternative ways to participate in Halloween broken down into low, moderate, and high-risk categories.

  • Trick or Treat Tips
  • Trick or Treat print-friendly signs identifying participation status:
  • Trick or Treat friendly (Those interested in participating in trick-or-treating are asked to place this sign on your window or door.)
  • No Trick or Treating Here or Out of Candy (Those who are not interested in participating are asked to place this sign on your window or door.)
  • Alternative Halloween Activities
  • Low risk Activities:
  • Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household and displaying them
  • Carving or decorating pumpkins outside, at a safe distance, with neighbors or friends
  • Decorating your house, apartment, or living space
  • Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance
  • Having a virtual Halloween costume contest
  • Having a Halloween themed meal & movie night with the people you live with
  • Having a scavenger hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house
