Halloween During COVID-19

The Town of East Longmeadow encourages all residents to follow the Massachusett's Department of Public Health's guidance for Halloween during COVID-19. More information on how to have a safe and healthy Halloween can be found at

Lower risk activities that can be safe alternatives include: 
-Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household and displaying them
-Carving or decorating pumpkins outside, at a safe distance, with neighbors or friends
-Decorating your house, apartment, or living space
-Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance
-Having a virtual Halloween costume contest
-Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with
-Having a scavenger hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house
