There are many ways to celebrate creatively this year! The Safer Halloween Guidance provides a variety of ideas for those hoping to enjoy the holiday. Some examples include:        

  • Watch Halloween movies at home or virtually with others
  • Join a Halloween movie night at drive-in theaters
  • Attend a virtual costume party or virtual craft projects event
  • Decorate your house or apartment inside and out
  • Visit a trunk or treating event
  • Attend a car costume parade

“Traditional trick-or-treating can be a high-risk activity and alternatives are strongly encouraged this year. We must remain diligent during this holiday season and ensure that we are wearing face coverings, practicing social distancing, and avoiding mixing with people that do not live in our household,” shared Van Do-Reynoso, Director for the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department.
