Celebrate Halloween Safely in Coralville

Trick or treat hours in Coralville are 5:30-8:00 pm on Saturday, October 31. For those who wish to trick-or-treat, the City of Coralville offers these guidelines to help minimize the risk for spreading COVID-19:

  • Limit trick-or-treating to the friends, neighbors, or the “pod” you have already been social distancing with.
  • Wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose. A costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask.
  • Handing out treats person-to-person is not recommended. Neighbors who choose to give out treats should do so outdoors and watch from a safe distance of at least six feet. Rather than putting all the treats in a bowl, thoroughly wash your hands and toss treats to kids, or place treats where children can grab one without touching the remaining treats; for example, spread treats on a table outside. 
  • Skip homes where the neighbors or trick-or-treaters are not keeping a safe distance or wearing a cloth mask.
  • Turn on your outdoor lights only if you are giving out treats. Trick-or-treaters should not visit homes without outdoor lights turned on; be mindful that some households may not participate due to existing health conditions or concerns.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands frequently.
  • Stay home if you feel sick. If you may have COVID-19, or if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, do not participate in in-person Halloween activities and do not give out treats.
  • Traveling to other places to trick-or-treat can increase the risk of COVID-19 spread between communities.
