LAST UPDATED – 10/26/20
Delaware Public Health has released guidance on Halloween and other fall events and activities and staying safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
Not all towns have posted if there will be trick or treating this year – and some have had their information posted since before the pandemic began – so you should check with your town to make sure.
And a reminder – if you are NOT giving out treats – do NOT turn on any outside lights. Trick or treaters should ONLY go to homes with porch lights that are lit.

Traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating should not happen without modification. That means contactless delivery of treats, social distancing, and cloth face coverings. The guidance also says large indoor Halloween parties should not occur, and people should avoid large indoor haunted experiences unless proper safety measures are in place. There will be heightened police and fire presence throughout the City on Halloween evening to ensure the community’s safety, especially that of pedestrians walking in dimly lit areas near the road.
