BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — COVID-19 may frighten HOA’s into canceling trick-or-treating this year. That’s what we’re hearing from HOA’s in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach.
Several contacted by BocaNewsNow.com say there’s nothing official yet, but there is concern that kids walking around in groups and literally taking candy from strangers is not conducive to preventing COVID-19 spread.
“There are communities where adults turn Halloween into outside drinking events,” said an HOA board member of a large Boca Raton community who wished to remain anonymous. ”That just can’t happen right now. We don’t want to encourage people to make really bad decisions.”
Palm Beach County has not included Halloween activities as part of its “phase 2” reopening plan which started at 12:01 Tuesday morning, September 8th. The plan continues for at least two months and will be adjusted based on positivity rates across the area. It is conceivable that Halloween will be addressed if positivity rates rise.
For now, those speaking with BocaNewsNow.com say their communities are working on alternate Halloween plans that may involve costumes but do not involve physical interaction.
