The mayors for Duson, Scott, Broussard, Carencro, Youngsville and Lafayette signed off on the times and recommendations for a COVID -safe Halloween.

Trick-or-treat will be on Halloween from 6 pm to 8 pm, according to a spokesperson.

Officials offer the following safety guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19 while trick-or-treating.

• Don’t wear gloves when handing out candy. Offer pre-wrapped goody bags or sanitize hands in between house visits.

• Do not participate in Halloween festivities if you are feeling ill.

• Only Trick-or-Treat with members of your household and within your own neighborhood, if possible.

• Halloween masks are not a substitute for real masks. Please ensure that proper face coverings are worn while out in public.

• Avoid activities in which germs can spread easily such as bobbing for apples or close-quartered haunted houses.

• Consider alternatives to Trick or Treating such as CDC’s Zombie Survival Scavenger Hunt or Drive-Thru Trick or Treating
