Center for Disease Control (The CDC) Recommended Guidelines for a Safe Halloween
A costume mask should not be a substitute for a cloth mask.
A costume mask should not be used unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers the mouth and nose and doesn’t leave gaps around the face.
It may be a good idea to come up with a Halloween-themed cloth mask.
If screaming will occur, greater distancing is advised.
The greater the distance, the lower the risk of spreading a respiratory virus.
The following Halloween Activities have been judged as low, moderate, and high risk for contracting COVID-19:
Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household, or outside, at a safe distance with neighbors or friends
Decorating your home
Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance
Having a scavenger hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house
Participating in one-way trick-or-treating where individually wrapped goodie bags are lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance (such as at the end of a driveway or at the edge of a yard)
Having a small group, outdoor, open-air costume parade where people are distanced with more than 6 feet apart
Attending a costume party outdoors where protective masks are used and people can remain more than 6 feet apart
Participating in traditional trick-or-treating where treats are handed to children who go door to door
Having trunk-or-treat where treats are handed out from trunks of cars lined up in large parking lots
Attending crowded costume parties held indoors
Going to an indoor haunted house where people may be crowded together and screaming
Going on hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household

Governor Eric Holcomb in response to the COVID-19 Emergency and the opening of public schools has temporarily suspended regulatory statues as they relate to schools and child care programs.
Many school corporations have opted or been ordered to provide remote or e-learning rather than in-person instruction, leaving working parents in the lurch if their children remain at home.
On August 21st, he signed Executive Order 20-40, which allows school corporations to contract with organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club or YMCA, to operate school-age childcare programs in locations in addition to public school buildings to help families who need care while their students engage in e-learning.
Additionally, the order increases the number from six to 10 of school-aged children allowed to gather in one location on school days for e-learning without requiring the childcare setting to be licensed.
