Safe Halloween

Safe Halloween

From trick-or-treating kids to pumpkin-spiced lattes, Halloween is now a part of modern Norwegian culture.

Halloween have become more popular in Norway in recent years. Throughout October, stores stock up on anything ghostly and ghoulish, anything orange and black and especially items shaped like a pumpkin, and of course, bags of candy.

This year Halloween will be different. Due to the corona virus many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses. Norwegian Institute of Public Health encourage everyone to take precautions.

Halloween Health & Safety Tips:

  • Indoor gatherings generally pose more risk than outdoor gatherings.
  • No more than 5 guests at private events (inside). Kindergarten and primary schools follow their cohort.
  • Stay home if sick.
  • Wash or sanitizer hands frequently, especially before eating any treats you acquire.
  • Do not hand out candy if you are sick.
  • Give out candy with tongs or wearing gloves.
  • Make sure all candy is wrapped.
  • Leave space between you and other groups to reduce crowding on stairs and sidewalks.
  • Reduce number of house visits.

Have fun and stay safe!
