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.

Johnson County Public Health and other experts caution that traditional trick-or-treating is riskier than alternatives; although interactions door-to-door are typically quick, they usually involve close and frequent contact, the conditions that spread SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. 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.
