Coronavirus: Celebrating Halloween safely

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

While you may not be able to celebrate Halloween in the same way this year, you can still have fun safely with your family.

To protect yourself and your community, please consider giving trick or treating a miss.

Coronavirus most commonly spreads between people in close contact with each other (closer than 2 metres) when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, or breathes, spreading the virus through respiratory droplets or small particles.

Coming into contact with more people and touching potentially infected surfaces by doing things like sharing sweets and ringing doorbells, and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes, could put you at increased risk of coronavirus. You could also pass it onto people who are more vulnerable, as well as increase the anxiety of residents through repeated knocks on their doors.

Instead, why not watch a scary film, go for a spooky walk dressed as zombies, or get into ghoulish garb for a spooky family dinner of worms (spaghetti) on toast and share your night with your friends on social media.
