VILLAGE OF VOLO TRICK-OR-TREAT GUIDELINES

 

The Village of Volo will hold trick-or-treat on Saturday, October 31, 2020 between the hours of 4:00 – 7:00 PM. Not all families will feel comfortable participating in trick-or-treating this year. Participation is a personal choice for each family, and neighbors may choose differently from others based on their own comfort levels. All trick-or-treaters are encouraged to be respectful of their neighbors' decisions.  

Distributing Candy:

  • Place the pumpkin (see document below) in a spot easily visible from the sidewalk to signify you are participating.
  • To discourage trick-or-treaters from ringing doorbells (high touch surface) residents are encouraged to leave individually wrapped candy (spaced apart) on a table in driveways or in front of walkways, sidewalks, or any outdoor space where 6-feet of distance can be maintained.
  • Wear a mask, maintain social distancing, and wash or sanitize your hands frequently.
  • Do not participate in trick-or-treating if anyone in your household is unwell or may have been exposed to COVID-19.
  • Please refrain from distributing coins, cash, homemade treats, or fresh fruit.

Trick-or-Treaters:

  • Visit only those houses which have a pumpkin displayed and do not ring doorbells.
  • Maintain small groups consisting of those in the same household.
  • Do not participate in trick-or-treating if anyone in your household is unwell or may have been exposed to COVID-19.
  • Wear a mask, maintain social distancing, and wash or sanitize your hands frequently.
  • Wait to approach a home until the previous group has moved on.

Please be aware that should the State of Illinois release restrictions for trick-or-treating those restrictions would supersede the above guidelines.
