Fall activities this year may look and feel different compared to previous years. But it doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy the festivities. With a little planning and caution, you can still enjoy some of the fall’s signature activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.



There are still a lot of things that we can do safely. The trick here is to make sure everyone is taking all the necessary precautions to protect everyone.

It is important to maintain at least six feet from other people and if it is really not possible, wearing a face mask is crucial. You should equip yourself with soap and hand sanitizer so you can sanitize your hands whenever necessary.


Halloween during the COIVD-19 pandemic

Halloween is one of the most exciting events for children. Parents may wonder how Halloween should go this year.

For trick-or-treating, make sure to talk about it as a community because it might be a risk for everyone to distribute candy in the neighborhood. If the community is comfortable canceling trick-or-treat this year, everyone will need to respect that rule.

For parents who will allow their kid to trick-and-treat, make sure your child maintains social distance from others, reduce the number of houses they are allowed to visit. Also, make sure the child has a face mask that's covering the mouth and nose with s multiple layers and ties around the ears or back of the head.

Before going back to your homes, make sure to sanitize your child’s candy basket before putting it inside the house. 

For those who want to pass out candies, you may consider leaving candy and hand sanitizer out on a table at the end of your driveway. You can also designate one person with clean hands to pass out the candy. Experts are suggesting kids should not pick directly from the bowl because it could spread more germs. It is advised to skip on passing out homemade goods too.


Autumn activities during the COVID-19 pandemic

We might be spending more time in our homes, but it doesn’t mean we have to skip every fall activity we once loved. Little organization, preparation, and creativity are needed for your own fall activities.


Haunted house

There are businesses offering a drive-thru haunted house experience to limit the exposure of large gatherings but if you are skeptical about this, you can also opt for decorating your house or your neighborhood. Just make sure to disinfect everything and monitor the number of people visiting the area.


Apple picking or visiting a pumpkin patch

These are the popular autumn attractions and with a little preparation and vigilance, these can be safely enjoyed this year. Most establishments require you to secure a reservation to visit these facilities as they can control the number of people in the area. Try to visit during off-peak hours and always bring your face mask and hand sanitizer with you.
