Trick-or-Treat Guidelines


Town of Rollinsford

Guidelines for Trick or Treat

Friday, October 30, 2020

5 pm- 7pm

The Town of Rollinsford is not prohibiting Trick or Treat activities and encourages residents to follow the state recommendations set by the Governor’s Office.  The CDC lists trick or treat activities as High risk and residents need to take responsible action to prevent the spread of Covid 19 and ask themself if the possible risk is worth it.

If you are planning on Trick or Treating:

  • STAY HOME if you are not feeling well.
  • Wear a mask that that covers both mouth and nose. A costume mask alone is not sufficient.
  • Avoid large gatherings or parties and maintain a 6-foot distance from others not with your group, including when accepting treats.
  • Practice frequent hand cleaning-bring hand sanitizer with you and use it often.
  • Only go to those homes that you know.

If you are planning on handing out treats:

  • Do not participate if you are ill or are concerned for your health.
  • Turn on an outside light.
  • Wear a mask that covers both mouth and nose. A costume mask alone is not sufficient.
  • Maintain a 6-foot distance between you and the trick or treaters by placing a table or object on your driveway or lawn and place the candy on that item.
  • Clean the table/object frequently.
  • Set up so people do not need to touch your home’s door handles and doorbells.

Town Hall Phased Opening

Open Today and Next Tuesday for Election Registration

The Select Board is working on a policy to protect the public and employees and allows more convenience to residents. For this first phase, the Town Hall will be open this afternoon from 3-7 and next Tuesday, August 18th from 3-7 for the Town Clerk window only. After that time the Select Board will evaluate potentially opening up the Town Clerk window for all Town Hall hours.

Masks must be worn by all and social distancing is required. Masks are available for those who need them. If you have a medical condition and are unable to wear a mask, we ask that you call ahead so we can make arrangements with you to meet your needs outside of the building.

We appreciate your patience as we work cautiously to open the offices in this phased approach. Stay tuned for further developments.
