Halloween

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released guidance for Halloween. This guidance can be found here. COVID-19 continues to spread within Jefferson County, and some alterations to the normal trick-or-treating process are needed.

Jefferson County Department of Health suggests the following actions:

  • Participate in one way trick-or-treating with individually wrapped goodie bags lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance.
  • Make sure to wear facial coverings under costume masks. Unfortunately, costume masks are made of very thin material, and may not provide protection to the wearer and to those around them that a cloth mask would.
  • Avoid large indoor gatherings as this can dramatically increase the spread of COVID-19.
  • If larger events occur, outdoors in the open air is safer. Additionally, facial coverings and social distancing should be utilized to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
To further encourage safe social distancing practices during Halloween, JCDH has created a printable image that residents can display. Download it here.

If you have been tested for COVID-19, you should quarantine until your results are back. For instructions on what to do once you have received a positive or a negative test result please click here.

Coronavirus COVID-19: What You Should Know

The Jefferson County Department of Health is reminding everyone to carefully follow these recommendations:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people. This is especially important for people who are older or who have chronic medical conditions including lung disease, heart disease, and diabetes. This may mean avoiding large gatherings including worship services.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
