Have a Healthy and Happy Halloween with Safety Guidance

Halloween is coming up, but it will look different than years past because, you know, the COVID-19 pandemic.

Often, many kids and families gather at doors or on sidewalks, and the more households they visit, the greater chance that germs are spread and linger. Here are some ways to keep yourself, your kids and your community healthy.
