Halloween 2021 is probably going to look more like Halloween 2020 than we were hoping. But even if you’re not trick-or-treating in a traditional sense, there are lots of ways you can still enjoy this fun holiday activity.
For many kids, Halloween is the best event of the year! Being able to dress up in a costume and go door-to-door to get candy is something they get really excited about. Unfortunately, social distancing restrictions due to COVID-19 put a damper on Halloween 2021 plans. That’s why it’s important to know what your little ones should do if they’re going to trick-or-treat. It’s also a great idea to find other ways to celebrate this year.

Many of us may be getting tired of social distancing. But with flu season upon us, it’s more important than ever to practice distancing to slow the spread of coronavirus. Activities like trick-or-treating are easy ways to spread the disease.
If you’re experiencing symptoms pointing to the COVID-19 coronavirus or feeling sick, it’s important to sit this year out so you don’t negatively impact others. For those who do want to celebrate the season, be sure you’re aware of the social distancing guidelines.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommendations for "safer holidays." Some of their suggestions include leaving goodie bags on yards or driveways for families to grab as they go by. Things like crowded costume parties and crowded haunted houses are also a no-no.
However, Halloween 2021 alternatives can include backyard gatherings or virtual costume contests where people can show off their creative ideas. It’s just important to follow social distancing rules, so make sure to avoid crowds while spending the night going door-to-door.
If you're not feeling comfortable with traditional trick-or-treating, there are plenty of ways you can still enjoy Halloween 2021 activities. Share your own health and safety tips on FamilyApp with other users!
