Health experts, including Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, have said Halloween need not be cancelled this year due to the pandemic.
Instead, they have said kids can still trick or treat and homeowners can still hand out goodies by taking safety precautions.
Such precautions for trick and treaters include wearing bright colours and/or using reflective tape, buttons and lights for costumes, cleaning hands frequently, carrying hand sanitizer if eating treats on the go, leaving space between yourself and other groups and being patient and waiting for other groups to finish before taking your turn.
Advice for those handing out treats includes getting creative by finding ways to make space between people when distributing the treats. These methods can include using tongs, a baking sheet or making a candy slide, like this industrious resident in Batchelor Heights has done.
Halloween visitors to 2177 Saddleback Dr. will be greeted by a Seattle Seahawks-themed candy chute, with the goodies being sent down the tube and landing in the buckets and bags of kids with the accuracy of a Russell Wilson touchdown pass.
And all those 12th boys and girls can sit down the next day and munch on their loot while watching the Seahawks try to go to 6-1 when they host NFL West Division rival San Francisco 49ers.
