Editor's Note: Picture is not from this year, or associated with Delaware haunted attractions.

Haunted attractions in Delaware will look a bit different this fall. Many have made drastic changes in order to keep their doors open.

ABC 47 reports that both Nightmare’s Haunted House and Screams at the Beach have been approved by the CDC to stay open. Both attractions hope to provide visitors with plenty of scares while keeping things inside safe.

Ghouls will still be doing their best to provide the same thrills as before but will also keep their distance. Inside both these attractions, the actors dressed in scary costumes will be required to wear face masks and maintain social distancing protocols. There will be temperature checks before every shift.

In addition, the haunted houses will be permitting much smaller groups than before and sanitize the attractions frequently.

Frightland, well known for its haunted hayride and popular haunted houses, will also be adopting many of these same policies according to their website. They will also no longer be combining groups and require all visitors to receive a temperature check before entering.
