The Tompkins County Health Department was recently advised by New York State that outdoor Halloween events such as a “trunk or treat” are subject to the 50 person, non-essential gathering restriction, which includes vendors, security, patrons and volunteers. If planning such an event, it is required that the size of the event does not exceed more than fifty people at any given time. An alternative option to a walk-through trunk or treat event would be to develop a drive-through format with COVID-19 protocols in place.
