• COVID-19 Guidance for Halloween in Community Associations

    “Spooky scary skeletons
    Send shivers down your spine
    Shrieking skulls will shock your soul
    Seal your doom tonight”

    Like everything else, Halloween will look a little different in our community associations this year thanks to COVID-19. In response to the pandemic, both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and the New Jersey Department of Health (“NJDOH”) have issued “Halloween Celebration Guidance” to be followed when trick or treating or just celebrating the season.

    While most of this guidance, which includes social distancing, wearing a mask, washing hands frequently, etc., should not be new to anyone, there are some good suggestions for those who plan to either give or receive candy. And remember that your Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, or other costume masks are not acceptable substitutes – incorporate a cloth mask into your costume. Most importantly, have fun and stay safe!
