Stay Safe This Halloween

This year staying safe is not just avoiding goblins, ghouls and ghosts... protect yourself and others from the scary coronavirus by sticking to Halloween activities limited to your household, enjoying virtual events, practicing physical distancing and wearing a mask. Lane County has recommendations for a safe holiday with activities evaluated by low, moderate and high risk.

Stay tuned for details as they adjust this event to adhere to COVID-19 protocols.
