Halloween is almost here! And this year, for the first time since the pandemic started, parents will be able to take their kids trick-or-treating and/or offer treats to kids from their neighbourhoods without so many restrictions, even though COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Ontario as the weather gets colder. So, how can parents make sure kids enjoy a safe and fun Halloween regardless of the pandemic? Keep reading for some essential Halloween safety tips.
Disinfect & Fog's Top 3 Halloween Safety Tips
At Disinfect & Fog, we believe in smart disinfection and sanitization of spaces for a germ-free life, and Halloween is no exception. There are several things parents can do to make sure their kids and their neighbour's kids have a germ-free trick-or-treat experience this spooky season, such as:
- Prioritizing hand hygiene on the go. Hand hygiene is still the best personal protection strategy against germs, including viruses like the one that causes COVID-19. That's why parents should make sure kids carry hand sanitiser with them at all times while trick-or-treating and reapply it whenever they touch unknown surfaces or objects, including delicious candy!
- Sanitizing treats before offering them to kids. Sanitization and disinfection also apply to treats offered to neighbouring kids. Adults should disinfect these items before trick-or-treaters show up and, ideally, set up a contactless station where they can pick their own treats and put them into their bags, baskets, or buckets without having to grab them from someone's hand.
- Spraying before eating. Whenever possible, it is important that kids wait to eat the candy they collect until their parents have a chance to inspect them and disinfect all of them. This will give parents a chance to discard any treats that look soiled, mishandled, opened, dusty, or suspicious. For disinfecting, it is a good idea to spray down all the packaging using a biodegradable disinfectant and a dry fogger.
