Wondering how you can celebrate Halloween safely during a COVID-19 pandemic?
Although COVID-19 doesn’t take a holiday, it’s still possible to have fun on Halloween. To help residents assess the risk of Halloween-related activities, the St. Louis County Department of Public Health has produced the following chart. GREEN events are considered safe, YELLOW means use caution, and RED means high risk.
It’s important to note that any large, public event, including block parties, haunted houses and other holiday gatherings, MUST submit a safety plan to DPH and have it approved before opening. Email now to: [email protected]
