Trick-or-Treating: October 31, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Halloween is just around the corner, but this year, thanks to COVID-19 and flu season, trick-or-treating will take a lot more preplanning so that everyone can stay safe.

As in year’s past, trick-or-treating throughout Chatham, which includes The Landings, is on October 31, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer the following trick-or-treating safety tips:

  • Stay at least six feet from others who don’t live with you.
  • Wear a mask. A costume mask is NOT a substitute for a cloth mask.
  • Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters. 
  • Give out treats outdoors, if possible. 
  • Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take. 
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home and before you eat any treats.
