The Siksika CDC Team has created guidance for Halloween Activities for Siksika Nation. Siksika Health Services has developed these tips for trick or treaters, those handing out candy, and those who are participating in Halloween events.
To help prevent any possible spread of COVID-19, refrain from participating in Halloween activities if:
-You have any new or change in symptoms;
-You have traveled outside of Alberta or Canada within the last 14 days;
-You have been in contact with any ill person, or any confirmed or probable case of COVID-19.
Wear a non-medical face mask that covers your nose, mouth, and chin while participating in any Halloween activities.
Choose costumes that allow you to wear a non-medical mask; if your costume includes a mask, wear a non-medical face mask underneath your Halloween mask.
If you can, knock instead of pushing doorbells, or keep 2 metres from the door or porch and call trick or treat.
Carry hand sanitizer (minimum 60% alcohol) and use it regularly while trick-or-treating.
Maintain 2 meters distance from anyone who does not live in your household while participating in any Halloween activities.
Wait until youre home and have washed your hands before handling candy. Refrain from sharing food, drinks, candy with others, as COVID-19 can spread easily from saliva.
It is important to remember that people can be contagious with COVID-19 and have no symptoms.
