Spooky season is here, and few cities can compete with New Orleans when it comes to Halloween. Our decorations are outlandish. Our costumes are one-of-a-kind. And our community cares about COVID-19 safety best practices! We’re so lucky to live in a city where our neighbors look out for us. Let’s be sure we do the same.
Here are a few activities that the CDC lists as high-risk, which we should do our best to avoid during this season:
- Attending crowded indoor costume parties
- 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
- Using alcohol or drugs, which can cloud judgment and increase risky behaviors
- Traveling to a rural fall festival that is not in your community if you live in an area with a community spread of COVID-19
Instead, we recommend keeping your bubble small—limited to just your closest friends/roommates, and planning virtual events or socially distanced options with proper masking. Browse HowlConnect
for upcoming events that follow our health and safety guidelines.
