CT Halloween 2020 Guidance

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic requires all of us to take steps to keep ourselves, our families, and our communities safe and healthy: wear our masks, wash our hands frequently, and maintain social distancing. As a result, we will need to celebrate many fall traditions differently this year, including Halloween.

Traditional Halloween activities carry a high risk for spreading COVID-19, but we can reduce that risk significantly by organizing and participating in fun, lower or moderate risk alternatives. The holiday may look different this year, but the Connecticut Department of Public Health (CT DPH) believes we can still enjoy a happy (and healthy) Halloween. The CT DPH recommends that everyone planning to participate in Halloween activities this year review the guidance recently issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

That guidance describes “lower” “moderate” and “higher” risk activities. DPH recommends that Connecticut residents avoid higher risk Halloween traditions and focus celebrations on the lower and moderate risk activities. The ability to maintain social distancing and follow face covering rules is especially important when participating in Halloween activities. In addition, please refrain from leaving your home for any Halloween activity and do not pass out Halloween candy if you are ill or have traveled to one of the states listed on the Connecticut travel advisory between October 16th and October 30th (i.e. 14 days before Halloween).

In this case you should be following the testing and self-quarantining guidelines, per Executive Order No. 9C. CDC guidance and safety tips are summarized below, along with additional considerations for restaurants and colleges and Universities.

Guía de CT para Halloween 2020

La actual pandemia de COVID-19 requiere que todos nosotros tomemos medidas para mantenernos a nosotros mismos, a nuestras familias y a nuestras comunidades seguras y saludables: usar nuestras máscaras, lavarnos las manos con frecuencia y mantener el distanciamiento social. Como resultado, necesitaremos celebrar muchas tradiciones otoñales de manera diferente este año, incluyendo el Halloween.

Las actividades tradicionales de Halloween conllevan un alto riesgo de propagación de COVID-19, pero podemos reducir ese riesgo de manera significativa organizando y participando en alternativas divertidas, de menor o moderado riesgo. La fiesta puede parecer diferente este año, pero el Departamento de Salud Pública de Connecticut (CT DPH) cree que todavía podemos disfrutar de un feliz (y saludable) Halloween. El CT DPH recomienda que todos los que planeen participar en las actividades de Halloween este año revisen la guía recientemente publicada por los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC).

Esa guía describe actividades de riesgo “bajo”, “moderado” y “alto”. El DPH recomienda que los residentes de Connecticut eviten las tradiciones de Halloween de alto riesgo y que centren las celebraciones en las actividades de riesgo más bajo y moderado. La capacidad de mantener el distanciamiento social y seguir las reglas de cubrimiento de la cara es especialmente importante cuando se participa en actividades de Halloween. Además, por favor absténgase de salir de su casa para cualquier actividad de Halloween y no reparta dulces de Halloween si está enfermo o ha viajado a uno de los estados que figuran en el aviso de viaje de Connecticut entre el 16 y el 30 de octubre (es decir, 14 días antes de Halloween).

En este caso, debe seguir las directrices de pruebas y autocuarentena, según el Decreto Ejecutivo Nº 9C. A continuación se resumen las directrices y consejos de seguridad de los CDC, junto con consideraciones adicionales para restaurantes y colegios y universidades.
