UPDATED > Salisbury to abide by NB Guidelines for Halloween
Salisbury Village Council asks that when it comes to Halloween this year, residents follow the coronavirus guidelines updated on Oct. 14th by the Province of New Brunswick (click_here_for_NB_Halloween_Guidelines). Please note that there are different directives in place depending on which stage of the COVID-19 Recovery Plan (ie. Yellow level, Orange level) a particular Zone is at. Currently, the Moncton region, including Salisbury (Zone 1) is ORANGE, meaning door-to-door collecting and giving out of treats is NOT permitted by NB Public Health. Should this status change, what is acceptable for Halloween will also change (refer to the information at the provided link above) *.
* Meantime, should the status advance to Yellow again (under which door-to-door activity would be permitted for Halloween), if you are a homeowner/resident who still does NOT wish to participate in Halloween this year, the Village of Salisbury asks that you adopt the long unwritten practice of turning OFF your outdoor light (or porch light, yard light) as a form of signal to trick-or-treaters that this house will not be giving out treats. Trick-or-treaters are asked to look for a light-on to identify which houses to approach.
