The Nevada Health Response is issuing recommendations and guidance for celebrating Halloween and Día de los Muertos.
El Día de los Muertos is a cherished cultural tradition celebrated in the fall by many Nevadans, and Halloween is a fun time for families to get dressed up in the spooky spirit, but in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it remains critical that we do all we can to minimize the risk of catching or spreading the COVID-19 virus while enjoying these special days.
Many traditional activities, such as door-to-door trick-or-treating, may appear low risk because they take place outdoors or the interactions may be short. However, when a lot of people participate in lower-risk activities at the same time, it raises the potential for disease spread across the state. As Nevadans plan their activities, they are urged to consider and follow the guidelines and best practices as outlined in the guidance.
