Dear Village Folks:
Halloween 2020: Have Fun. Stay Safe.
The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson will allow Trick or Treating in this year of the pandemic. We want children to experience the fun of this cultural tradition.
And we want everyone to be safe.
So that means that the Trick or Treaters must wear face masks – in addition to any masks for their costumes. They must social distance and travel in small numbers, with kids in their circles.
Parents must instruct their children to be safe, to abide by precautions that have been in effect for months.
To those handing out the goodies, you have several options:
- Wear a mask yourself as you distribute candy;
- Place candy outside at the end of your driveway or on your stoop;
- Don’t participate this year.
Orange County Health Commissioner has issued a comprehensive advisory on how to safely navigate Halloween.
All the best,
