City of Lakewood To Follow Ohio Department of Health Guidance for Halloween
September 21, 2020

Use caution and plan ahead for celebrating Halloween amid the COVID-19 pandemic

The City of Lakewood will adhere to the Ohio Department of Health’s “Celebrating Halloween” guidance released on Friday, September 18th. Trick-or-treat activities will be from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Saturday, October 31st in Lakewood.

To protect the safety and health of all members of our community while celebrating Halloween, the City of Lakewood encourages caution for Halloween and other fall festivities. While broad in nature to cover the situations experienced by most Ohioans, the Ohio Department of Health’s “Celebrating Halloween” guidance provides the following good advice for Lakewoodites:

For Parents/Guardians of Trick-or-Treaters

  • For trick-or-treating, reach out to neighbors to discuss ways to ensure 6-foot social distancing, how candy can most safely be distributed, and the need for face coverings.
  • Refrain from having children select their own treats from a bowl/common container or set up a hand-sanitizing station. Consider placing treats on porch steps or a table in the driveway with a sign asking children to take only one. Or use other creative ways to distribute treats, such as using a candy “slide” made of PVC pipe, or hanging treats from a wall or fence.
