CDC Guidelines

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued recommendations on safe alternatives to celebrate Halloween, categorizing them in lower, moderate and high risk activities. For example, outdoor walk-through haunted forests where people are using masks an social distancing is listed as a moderate risk activity, compared to a crowded costume party held indoors. Other moderate risk activities include visiting pumpkin patches or orchards where hand sanitizer is used before touching pumpkin or picking apples.
