COVID-19 Trick-or-Treating guidelines for Meridian, MS
We are just about a week away from Halloween. Without question, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to change the way we approach the holiday. Medical experts strongly suggest that people should avoid traditional trick-or-treating activities and people should largely stay home with their families. However, our city has released some COVID-19 trick-or-treating guidelines for Meridian, MS. The overarching message is largely the same as what the previously mentioned medical experts say. Everyone is best protected from viral transmission if they stay home. However, if you choose to venture outside, there are a few things that you can do to keep everyone as safe as possible. A few members of the Meridian Honda product expert team compiled this guide to help you stay safe and healthy.
Stay Together — We have learned that gathering in large groups is the way that COVID-19 is spread. If you do go out trick-or-treating, it’s advised that you stick with your family or the people that live in your household. Stay away from large groups and keep face-to-face interactions with other groups to a minimum.
Wear Masks — Wearing a mask when we leave the house should be old hat at this point. However, just because a costume comes with a mask of its own does that mean it will be effective as a COVID-19 barrier. A cloth or other kind of approved face covering should still be work. Plastic or rubber masks will not be effective barriers – some modifications might be required.
Keep it clean — Carrying hand sanitizer during a trick-or-treating trip is a must. While virus transmission via physical contact, like picking up candy, is fairly low risk, keeping hands clean is still highly recommended. The City of Meridian suggests that everyone should sanitize their hands between stops.
How can I safety handout candy?
If you’ll be on the other end of the trick-or-treating transaction and handing out candy, there are few things you can do to keep yourself and other safe on Halloween.
Mask up — If you plan on being outside and interacting with trick-or-treaters at all, you should be wearing an approved mask. Like the similar tip we shared above, a plastic or rubber Halloween mask isn’t going to be enough to keep you safe. Do your best to remain at least 6 feet from trick-or-treaters at all times.
No bowls — At the very least, all items (candy, etc.) that are handed out on Halloween should be individually wrapped. Putting items in small individual bags and placing them on a table for trick-or-treaters to take themselves would be ideal.
Clean it up — Make sure you are sanitizing the table or whatever you’re using to hand out treats this year as often as necessary. In fact, there is no such thing as too much sanitizing in a situation like this. Also, be sure to wash your hands with warm water and soap as frequently as possible.
Hopefully, these tips will help keep you safe for Halloween and beyond. Everyone at Meridian Honda would like to wish you and yours a happy and safe Halloween!

Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
Caring and professional work. The people were friendly. Would recommend to everyone. I have always had a very good experience.
Came in for an oil change and tire rotation and Josh let me know a couple more things that needed to be done.
Noone was pushy, they listened to what I wanted. They were very fair to deal with. My time in and out was fast.
Fast and Friendly to the most satisfactory degree. Always ready to do what is needed and always referenced me as to the work done or needed.
