Needless to say, this year Halloween is going to look quite different than in year’s past. COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines iare going to make standard Halloween celebratory festivities like trick or treating, haunted houses and pumpkin patches look different. Are they impossible? Absolutely not. Can we still celebrate Halloween? For sure, we just have to take the right precautions.
Some Halloween costumes already have masks incorporated into them, so if you’re planning on rocking one of those to your local neighborhood socially-distanced festivities then you’re good to go. Some Halloween festivities, like carving jack o’ lanterns, decorating your house, watching scary movies and gorging yourself on Halloween treats are COVID-friendly and won’t require too much shifting. Even though we can’t freely give out candy to large groups of people or share an apple bobbing tub at the current moment, we can still get in the spirit of the holiday. What better way to do that in the current health climate than with Halloween face masks.
Whether you’re looking for a costume that’s safe to celebrate in around others or just want something spirited to rock on your next trip to the grocery store here are the best Halloween face masks we could find.
