Hello Landfall Residents,
With Halloween just around the corner, please keep in mind that many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk in promoting the spread of COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends, in part, avoiding the Halloween traditions of door to door trick or treating, trunk-or-treat events, and indoor costume parties.
As many of you know, there are streets within Landfall that draw hundreds of ghosts and goblins on Halloween night. While children and adults alike enjoy mingling in such activities, please be reminded that mass gatherings of this nature are prohibited at this time.
While we are as ready as you are to resume our normal activities, we must discourage such mass gatherings in our community and continue to encourage our residents to put safety first and follow the CDC recommendations to avoid those activities that may put the community at unnecessary risk. Remember, your community begins with YOU.
There are several safer, alternative ways to participate in Halloween, and we thought this was a good time to provide you with some of these alternative options to your traditional Halloween celebrations. Ideas may include:
- Having a scavenger hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house
- Having a virtual Halloween costume contest
- Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with
While this may feel like one more thing that COVID-19 has taken from us this year, perhaps we can look at this as simply an opportunity to be creative and begin some new traditions! Traditions that will still allow you to enjoy this time with your family, and to do it safer.
Your Landfall COA
