St. Louis County Department of Public Health: Halloween Safety Advice

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.

 

  • GREEN  (low-risk activities): Home decorating; pumpkin-carving at home; putting on a candy scavenger hunt on your property for family members; watching Halloween movies. 
  • YELLOW (activities with risk): Small group gatherings outdoors, with participants socially distanced and wearing masks; outdoor mazes, with socially distanced and masked participants 
  • RED (high-risk activities): any indoor gathering; large outdoor gatherings; traditional, door-to-door trick-or-treating; public haunted houses.
