Halloween Trick or Treating for Victoria
The Premier has announced that we will be able to conduct trick or treat with our kids, however they will be in a very different way:
This Halloween there are some actions you can take to keep your friends, family and community safe, while still enjoying yourself.
If you have any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) get tested and stay at home. By staying at home this Halloween, you help to keep your friends, family and community safe.
Wear a face mask with your costume, but remember that a costume mask that is part of your Halloween costume is not a substitute for a face mask. Consider making your own mask and decorating it.
Keep at least 1.5 metres between yourself and people you don’t live with. This means no hugging or kissing when greeting people. Don’t share food or drinks.
Trick or Treating
While we can’t celebrate in the normal ways we would, there are alternative options
Have a Halloween party outside in a public place. You can catch up with a group of up to ten people (including yourself). Babies under 12 months age aren’t included in the ten-person limit. An outdoor public place means an area accessible to everyone, including local parks and beaches.
Do a Halloween scavenger hunt by giving children a list of Halloween-themed things to look for as they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance. Just like eye-spy! The limit of ten people (including yourself) applies to scavenger hunts.
Carve or decorate pumpkins with members of your household.
Decorate your house.
Have a virtual costume party or party with friends and family on video chat.
Have a Halloween movie night with your household
Create an around the house trick or treat or scavenger hunt for your household
