Trick-or-treating can happen in NH, but state officials release COVID-19 safety tips
Gov. Chris Sununu said Thursday that the state isn’t placing restrictions on trick-or-treating, because those decisions are made on a local level. But officials are recommending what Sununu called commonsense reminders to help children and adults avoid spreading COVID-19:
- Stay home if you are not feeling well.
- Consider wearing a mask over your nose and mouth when trick-or-treating and handing out treats.
- Avoid large gatherings or parties and find ways to trick-or-treat while staying at least 6 feet away from others, including when handing out and accepting treats.
- Practice frequent hand cleaning. Bring a bottle of alcohol-based hand sanitizer with you while trick-or-treating and use it often.
“Trick-or-treating is something that is 100% optional, for both kids and adults,” Sununu said. “And if folks don’t feel safe, they don’t feel comfortable, then they definitely should not partake in either trick-or-treating or providing candy.”
Cities and towns can set trick-or-treating times and other restrictions.
