set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take
wash hands before handing treats
wear a mask
Other Family Friendly Halloween Festivities:

Visit a pumpkin patch or corn maze in the area
Hide Halloween treats in and around your house, and send the kids on a hunt!
Organize an outdoor costume parade or contest in the neighborhood

Remember to stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you, wash your hands frequently, if possible, and bring hand sanitizer with you- using it after touching objects or other people.
Most importantly, enjoy the special time with family and friends while remembering these simple tips for a safe Halloween celebration!
