Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Newport has canceled its 2021
Decoween trick-or-treating activity. The city urges everyone to consider fun alternatives
that pose a lower risk of spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. Residents planning to give treats at Halloween should:
● Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters.
● Give out treats outdoors, if possible.
● Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take.
● Wash hands before handling treats.
● Wear a mask
If you plan to trick-or-treat with your children, remember that everyone should be
wearing a mask – a relatively simple task on Halloween. And, be respectful of the folks
providing treats. If you may have COVID-19 or you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should not participate in in-person Halloween festivities and should not give out candy to trick-or-treaters.
