 Recommended Halloween Guidelines 
  1. Masks aren't just for trick-or-treaters this year! Everyone-including candy givers-should wear a face covering (multi-layered, covering the mouth and nose, without gaps around the face).
  2. Leave a light on or hang a Halloweek sign in your window to let others know your house is giving out candy safely.
  3. Handing out candy? Please socially distance and have hand sanitizer, too.
  4. Trick or treating? Stay on the move! Less congregating means more houses and more candy.
  5. Ensure there's all treats and no tricks. Please don't reach into candy bowls while trick or treating, and eat candy only at home after washing your hands.
  6. No Haunted Houses. They are truly spooky and dangerous this year.
  7. Keep your candy crew small. Trick-or-treating groups should be 6 people or less.
  8. No house parties large or small this year.
Below are some printable signs for you to notify  
41st Ward Goblins and Ghouls if you are partaking in Halloween Trick-Or-Treating this year.
The flu vaccine has saved millions of lives. It is safe, effective, and available at no cost citywide at many doctor's offices, pharmacies, community health centers, and flu clinics.  
CDPH Commissioner Allison Arwady, M.D."What will happen this fall and winter is uncertain, but it is likely that there will be both COVID-19 and seasonal flu activity. Getting the seasonal flu vaccination before the end of October is the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, your community and the global community from the flu."
Please visit for more information and to locate any of the city-wide community flu clinics to get your flu shot at no cost.
