I hope everyone is doing well. As you can imagine I have been receiving many emails inquiring on what is happening for Halloween this year. We all know that 2020 has not been a normal year. We’ve had to make many adjustments for the pool season which is going to carry over to Halloween. With that being said OUR main goal should be making this as safe and normal of a Halloween night for the kids. The 2020 plan is as following:
1. There WILL NOT be a party down at the pool this year. 2. I know many feel safe coming down to the pool area because we don’t have lots of traffic. The following will happen down at the pool area:
a. Parking lot spaces (every other parking space) will be marked with a red dot and folks can come down and set up their car to trunk or treat or they can go door-to-door to the houses near the pool.
b. People should wear masks and social distance – PBRA will not be policing this, we are all adults.
c. Families that are trick or treating should go one way. Start at the parking lot and move to the right (past the playground) and go south up Chondra Drive and then come north on Chondra Drive.
d. For houses who want to participate and give out candy you might want to set up a table at the end of the drive way or at the edge of a yard so kids can grab and go while continuing to social distance instead of door-to-door crowds.
e. Houses can create individually wrapped goodie bags instead of having bowls where candy can be touched by multiple hands.
3. Anyone who has ANY symptoms of COVID-19 should not be participating.
4. In keeping with the following the guidelines we had for the pool season, everyone who participates should bring sanitizing supplies such as cleaners, wipes and/or hand sanitizer.
5. Everyone should use their own best judgment. PBRA assumes NO responsibility for decisions made by its members and non-members who are trick or treating regarding potential exposure, etc.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate this year. If anyone has any questions, please let me know.
