The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says outdoor activities are safer than being inside so by all means, head out to trick or treat tonight in Laurel from 6 pm to 8 pm.

Here are some safety tips to consider:

  • Avoid large crowds. If you can, stay with your family group.
  • Wear a face mask.
  • Light up costumes with reflective tape.
  • Carry glow sticks or flashlights.
  • Stay on the sidewalk.
  • Remind kids to look both ways before crossing the street.
  • Encourage kids to eat candy at home. Just in case, bring hand sanitizer that kids can use before eating treats.
  • Adults handing out candy should wear a mask before opening doors.
  • If you’re extra cautious: set up bowls of candy away from the front door.
