In an effort to maintain safety during a state of emergency and pandemic; please
consider the following guidance for trick or treating.
For those participating in giving out treats:
 Only give out candy in original wrappers

while behind a storm door, replace treats between groups

For those participating as trick or treaters:
 Stay in small groups, preferably with members of your family only
 Do not enter homes
 Avoid crowded areas
 Carry and use hand sanitizer, use of gloves is not recommended
 It is recommended to wear a protective mask (this could become part of
your costume)
 Only go to homes that have indicated they are participating in the event
 If you are uneasy of the way treats are being delivered, skip the house and
move on
Please remember these are guidelines and not rules. The safety of our citizens is
extremely important to us. If there are any questions, please look to the CDC for
further guidance. As always on Halloween make sure your costume is safe from
tripping, have an adult with your group, and carry a flashlight. The Town of
Alton Emergency Management Team looks forward to a safe and fun
