Many commonly celebrated Halloween and Día de los Muertos activities carry risk for spreading COVID-19. ACHPD encourages community members to limit celebrations to small, outdoor gatherings and implement extra safety measures – especially when everyone is not vaccinated – to help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.  

As a reminder, costume masks do not provide protection from COVID-19 and, for safety reasons, do not wear Halloween costume masks over a protective cloth mask. If participating in traditional trick-or-treating, wear a face mask or keep your distance from others, and sanitize your hands to help reduce your risk of getting COVID-19.
