Cayman: Here's your guide to Halloween 2020

Needless to say, 2020 has been scary enough without Halloween. But what better way to enjoy it all than at a scaaaaarrrrry party! Before we share where everything is happening, please be reminded to take the following COVID-precautions.

Minister of Health, Dwayne Seymour says that if out trick-or-treating, wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, ideally pocket-sized. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unclean hands or after touching candy and consider wearing a mask while visiting other people’s homes. Maintain six feet away from other groups as much as practical. Children should stick to social groups (the friends they usually see at home or at school).  Houses participating in trick-or-treating activities can do their part too.

Minister Seymour recommends the ‘grab-n-go’ method: Provide zip lock/ goodie bags for trick or treaters to grab-n-go. This limits the traditional grabbing of treats in one container; if you are preparing goodie bags, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before preparing the bags; place treats a few feet away from your door to maintain distance; disinfect treat areas regularly, tablecloths and other surroundings with disinfectant where people may regularly touch.
