Fort Leonard Wood officials have announced that the official Trick Or Treating date and hours this year will be Saturday, October 30th, from 6 to 8 o’clock in the evening. Special Covid protocols should be observed by trick-or-treating children and parents. No one should participate if they’re on isolation or quarantine status. Stay at home and do not pass out candy if you’re feeling sick or are vulnerable to Covid-19. Children should wear cloth masks when trick or treating. The same applies to those handing out candy. Costume masks aren’t a substitute for cloth masks. Do not wear a costume mask over your cloth masks. Do not wear masks that restrict vision. Maintain social distancing when feasible. Visit well-lit houses with porch lights on. Those not participating should turn off exterior lights. It is strongly recommended of house dwellers to provide “grab and go” or “self-serve” options for handing out candy. Check cady to be sure it is sealed, age-appropriate, and safe. Keep pets inside and away from visiting trick-or-treaters. Trick-or-treaters should carry a flashlight, glow-stick, or wear reflective clothing. They should always use a crosswalk and look both ways when crossing streets. By all means, stay out of the roadway. Make sure someone in your group has a cellphone. Don’t accept rides from strangers. Motorists should watch for pedestrians, triple-check at intersections, and do not pass stopped vehicles in the roadway. For those who do not want their children to go door-to-door for Halloween, there will be a drive-through option on Friday, October 29th, beginning at 5 p-m in the Building 470 Replacement Avenue parking lot.
