If your Halloween plans include trick or treating, remember these simple safety tips.

• Stick with members of your own household and distance from others when in crowded indoor and outdoor spaces.

• Wear a cloth mask and remember: a plastic costume mask is not a suitable substitute.

• Wash your hands before and after trick-or-treating.

• Bring plenty of hand sanitizer.
