Parents are trying to figure out what to do about Halloween. Our local doctors and health officials have recommended that you skip trick-or-treating this year. If you’re going to do it (which again they don’t recommend), they recommend you do it in a safe, physically distanced way with no contact. That means not touching doorbells, not having someone hand you candy.
Walmart is offering drive-thru contact-less trick-or-treating at three local stores.
You will stay in your car, wear masks and then drive through various stations. Treats will be put on trays and handed through car windows.
Costumes are encouraged.
Be sure to use hand-sanitizer or wash your hands before eating any candy. Wiping the candy wrappers down with disinfecting wipes or letting it sit for 72 hours is also a good idea.
