OCEAN COUNTY – The New Jersey Department of Health has announced a Halloween COVID-19 guidance document for Halloween trick or treaters and partygoers. The document lists information on how to safely celebrate the holiday whether it’s with indoor or outdoor activities.
“We’re happy everyone can still experience some type of Halloween festivities – especially our young ones who do look forward to this festive holiday,” said Gerry P. Little, Ocean County Freeholder and liaison to the Ocean County Board of Health. “The Ocean County Health Department (OCHD) is asking for everyone’s cooperation and to do their part by following the COVID-19 safety strategies provided for the protection and welfare of your friends, family and neighbors.”
“As a community we can’t let Halloween become a one day vacation from keeping up with the COVID-19 protocols such as social distancing, wearing protective face coverings and all the rest of the important precautions people have been following throughout the pandemic,” advised Daniel Regenye, OCHD Public Health Coordinator/Health Officer.
“Remember, safety first,” added OCHD Assistant Public Health Coordinator, Patty High.
