Thursday, October 21-October 27, 2021 704/484-1047 - shelby shopper & info - Page 19 Soon our streets will be scattered with little ghosts, goblins, and witches trick-or-treating this Halloween. "Halloween should be fi lled with surprise and enjoyment and following some common sense practices can keep events safer and more fun," said Sheriff Nor- man of Cleveland County. The Sheriff reminds all Cleveland County residents to follow these safety tips: COVID-19: • Follow State and County health policies. • Limit participating in traditional trick-or- treating where treats are handed to children who go door to door. • Halloween costume masks are not suitable to provide COVID-19 protection. • Promote the use of hand sanitizer by trick- or-treaters and their families. • Announce if there are any curfews in place. • Encourage social distancing. • Decline having trunk-or-treat where treats are handed out from trunks of cars lined up in large parking lots. • Do not attend crowded costume parties held indoors. • Avoid going to an indoor haunted house where people may be crowded together and screaming. • Discourage going on hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household. PARENTS: • Make sure that an adult or an older responsible youth will be supervising the outing for children under age 12. • Check the sex offender registry at www. when planning your child's trick-or- treat route. You can view maps that pinpoint registered offenders' addresses in your neighborhood and sign up to get email alerts when an offender moves nearby. • Plan and discuss the route trick-or-treaters intend to follow. Know the names of older children's companions. • Instruct your children to travel only in familiar areas and along an established route. • Teach your children to stop only at houses or apartment buildings that are well-lit and never to enter a stranger's home. • Establish a return time. • Tell your youngsters not to eat any treats until they return home. • Review all appropriate trick-or-treat safety precautions, including pedestrian/traffi c safety rules. • All children need to know their home telephone number and how to call 9-1-1 in case of emergency. • Pin a slip of paper with the child's name, address, and telephone number inside a pocket in case the youngster gets separated from the group. COSTUME DESIGN: • Only fi re-retardant materials should be used for costumes. • Costumes should be loose so warm clothes can be worn underneath. • Costumes should not be so long that they are a tripping hazard. • Make sure that shoes fi t well to prevent trips and falls. • If children are allowed out after dark, outfi ts should be made with light colored materials. Strips of retro-refl ective tape should be used to make children visible. MOTORISTS: • Watch for children darting out from between parked cars. • Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs. • Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully. • At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing. FACE DESIGN: • When buying special Halloween makeup, check for packages containing ingredients that are labeled "Made with U.S. Approved Color Additives," "Laboratory Tested," "Meets Federal Standards for Cosmetics," or "Non- Toxic." Follow manufacturer's instruction for application. ACCESSORIES: • Knives, swords, and other accessories should be made from cardboard or fl exible materials. Do not allow children to carry sharp objects. • Bags or sacks carried by youngsters should be light-colored or trimmed with retro-refl ective tape if children are allowed out after dark. • Carrying fl ashlights with fresh batteries will help children see better and be seen more clearly. WHILE TRICK-OR-TREATING: • Do not enter homes or apartments without adult supervision. • Walk; do not run, from house to house. Do not cross yards and lawns where unseen objects or the uneven terrain can present tripping hazards. • Walk on sidewalks, not in the street. • Walk on the left side of the road, facing traffi c, if there are no sidewalks. TREATS: • Give children an early meal before going out. • Insist that treats be brought home for inspection before anything is eaten. • Wash fruit and slice it into small pieces. • Throw away any candy that is unwrapped or partially wrapped or has a strange odor, color, or texture. HOMEOWNERS/DECORATIONS: • Keep candles and Jack O' Lanterns away from landings and doorsteps where costumes could brush against the fl ame. • Remove obstacles from lawns, steps, and porches when expecting trick-or-treaters. • Keep candles and Jack O' Lanterns away from curtains, decorations, and other combustibles that could catch fi re. • Do not leave your house unattended. Halloween is a fun time in Cleveland Coun- ty," Sheriff Norman concluded, "but let's make it a safe time as well. The major dangers are not from witches or spirits but rather from falls and pedestrian/car crash- es."
