“Keep it local and put effort into decorating the front yard, rather than focusing on well-known ‘treat streets’,” a NSW Health spokesperson said.
“Provide closed packaging for treats and instead of communal lolly bowls, consider other ways of distributing treats, like strewn along the front fence.
“And have hand sanitiser at the front gate.”
Maintaining social distance is also recommended and children “should not share costume face masks”.
Love it – or loathe it, Halloween is here – and we wish you all a fun, friendly and safe afternoon celebration!
