This is not a tip but a suggestion that could be “put out there”.
Most young trick or treaters start at 5:30 p.m. Perhaps a suggestion could be made to those households or organizations who plan to provide Halloween treats to start the process earlier, ie. 4 p.m.
Most households are ready, so why not start providing the Halloween treats earlier? This would be more like staggering time and [prevents] individuals congregating, too close of contact, etc. Presumably we are ready, the weather is nice and it will be warmer earlier in the day.
Be kind, be calm, stay safe.
