Halloween Trick or Treat

The Mayor has approved Trick or Treating from 5:00pm to 7:30pm on Saturday, October 31, 2020, in the City of Burton.

To help ensure the only thing scary about Halloween is the costumes the MDHHS has issued guidance on how to safely celebrate the holiday during the COVID-19 pandemic:


  • Stay home if sick
  • Trick or treat with people you live with
  • Remain 6 feet apart from people not in your household
  • Wear a face mask covering both your mouth and nose
  • Hand sanitize (with sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol) frequently while out, especially during key times like before eating or after coughing/sneezing


  • Do not hand out candy if you are sick
  • Wear a face mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose
  • Take the Safe House pledge and register as an official Halloween Safe House
  • Use duct tape to mark 6-foot lines in front of home and leading to driveway/front door-step
  • Participate in one-way trick or treating
    • Position a distribution table between yourself and trick or treaters
    • Distribute candy on disinfected surface to eliminate direct contact
    • If you are preparing goodie bags, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after preparing bags
    • Individually wrapped candy or goodie bags should be lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance
  • Wash hands often


  • Stay home if sick
  • Talk with your children about safety and social distancing guidelines and expectations
  • Guide children to stay on the right side of the road always to ensure distance
  • Carry a flashlight at night and ensure your children have reflective clothing
  • Wear a face mask covering BOTH your mouth and nose
  • Wash your hands as soon as you return home
  • Inspect candy

 Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
