City of Geneva Halloween 2020
Many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading COVID-19. Thus, we are not encouraging door-to-door trick or treating this year. We are excited to share several safer, alternative ways to celebrate Halloween. While participating in Halloween activities this year, please be sure to follow all CDC guidelines and practice safe social distancing while wearing a mask and washing your hands with soap and water.
We encourage everyone to consider partaking in these lower to moderate risk activities that can be safe alternatives:
· Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household
· Decorating your house, apartment or living space
· Participating in the City of Geneva’s virtual Halloween costume contest
· Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with
· Visiting only your family, friends and neighbors you normally interact with daily
