Alameda County would like to remind residents that many commonly celebrated Halloween and Día de los Muertos activities carry risk for spreading COVID-19. Limiting yourself to small gatherings and implementing extra safety measures— especially when everyone is not vaccinated—can help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. Together, we all need to do as much as we can to protect ourselves and those around us, including young children who are not yet eligible for vaccination.

As you plan and participate in Halloween and Día de los Muertos activities this year, it is highly recommended that everyone takes the following measures to protect against COVID-19:

  • Get fully vaccinated
  • Stay home if you have, or think you may have, COVID-19
  • Wear a face mask
  • Gather outdoors
  • Take safety precautions when trick-or-treating
  • Keep gatherings small
