Halloween 2020

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, participating in traditional trick-or-treating (where treats are handed to children who go door-to-door), is a high-risk activity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As our community plans for fall celebrations, here are ideas for lower-risk activities to help protect you, and your families, friends and community. 

"BOO" Your Neighbors

Surprise your neighbors with secret gifts! 

  • Select two neighbors without "BOO-ed" signs in their windows.
  • Safely package gifts (wash your hands first!). Ideas include cards, prepackaged treats, small decorations, etc. Include a copy of this sign.
  • Secretly deliver your surprises!
  • Share the fun via social using #IssaquahBOO.
