The City of Woodstock Trick or Treating Guidelines
Anyone participating in trick-or-treating should maintain social distance and wear proper face coverings; consider leaving individual candies spaced apart outside; trick-or-treat only with household members and wash hands before eating candy.
Neighborhood trick-or-treating will continue on Sunday, October 31, 2021 between the hours of 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
The City offers the following suggestions to help promote a safe Halloween experience for all:
Do not participate in trick-or-treating if you are feeling unwell, if someone in your house is unwell, if you are awaiting COVID-19 test results, or if you know that you have been exposed to COVID-19.
Turn on your porch lamp or outdoor lights to show that your home is welcoming trick-or-treaters. Not all families may feel comfortable participating in trick-or-treating this year; teach children to only approach a house if a light is on.
Face coverings should be worn by all participants over the age of two, including individuals passing out treats.
If you would prefer to answer the door to greet children individually, pass out candy instead of inviting children to take a treat from a communal bowl. Ask children to tell you their choice of a treat, rather than taking it themselves.
Use hand sanitizer regularly throughout the trick-or-treat hours.
Maintain a safe distance from other trick-or-treating groups, and do not approach a house until the previous group has left.
