Halloween 2020 will be taking place on a Saturday, it will also be the final day of daylight savings, with a Blue Moon in the sky. However these aren’t the only things making this year unique. According to Delaware Online, these are the recommendations officials have made for celebrating the holiday this year.
First, the division of public health recommends celebrating the holiday on Friday the 30th. Traditional Trick or Treating is not suggested without modification. This means face coverings, delivering treats without contact, and social distancing.
Large in-door Halloween parties are not suggested, along with haunted houses that do not provide proper safety precautions. Low to moderate risk activities include: pumpkin carving, decorating the inside of your house, virtual costume parties and contests, and turning homes into indoor scavenger hunts for candy like at Easter.
These latest precautions were provided Friday, when the state reported a 57% week over week increase with virus related hospitalizations.
