Safety Tips:

Every county and community WGAL News 8 reached out echoed the sentiment of community safety no matter how you and your family choose to celebrate Halloween this year. Below is a list of advice officials shared with us.

  • Wear a cloth face covering while outside your home and around those who you do not live with.
  • A costume mask is not an adequate substitute for a cloth mask unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers the mouth and nose and doesn’t leave gaps around the face.
  • Do not wear a costume mask over a protective cloth mas. This can be dangerous if the costume mask makes it hard to breathe. Instead, consider using a Halloween-themed cloth mask.
  • Maintain six feet or more of distance from people you do not live with, especially while talking, eating, drinking or singing.
  • Avoid places where you cannot maintain 6 feet or more of distance from people you do not live with.
  • Wash your hands or use sanitizer often.
  • Clean frequently touched items regularly.
  • If you are sick or if you have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19 stay home.
