ACT Health warn trick or treaters ahead of Halloween

Share Canberra's trusted news:

WITH people expected to be out and about trick or treating or attending events this Halloween (Saturday, October 31), ACT Health is warning Canberrans to continue being covid-safe. 

“There are no restrictions stopping trick or treating this Halloween, but we would like to remind the community to be covid-safe,” says an ACT Health spokesperson. 

“We are all used to the ongoing physical distancing and personal hygiene public health advice, so let’s continue this for the safety of our families, friends, colleagues and the wider community.” 

When trick or treating, ACT Health reminds people to not go if they’re feeling unwell, go with people they know, maintain physical distancing and if a house looks busy, come back to it later.

For people that would prefer to stay home and avoid crowds, ACT Health suggests doing covid-safe activities at home instead such as pumpkin carving, costume parades and movie nights.

Currently, the ACT has one active case of COVID-19. 

Covid tests in the ACT have returned 105,623 negative results.
