• If a mask is worn, be sure it has eye holes large enough to allow full vision

• Young children should always be accompanied by an adult or an older, responsible child

• Children should be cautioned against running out from between parked cars, or across lawns and yards where ornaments, furniture, or clotheslines present dangers

• Always use crosswalks, and cross with an adult

• Children should go only to homes where the residents are known and have outside lights on as a sign of welcome
