Halloween Safety Guidelines

The CDC has issued guidelines for Halloween across the United States, though the level of safety for any activity depends on local conditions. THD continues to track the data locally and has compiled the most up-to-date local health data for Tulsa County, all of which can be found on its website.

“We can’t always be the ‘no’ police,” THD Executive Director Dr. Bruce Dart said. “Halloween is an example of something that can still be fun for kids and families, as long as people follow the same general recommendations of wearing masks, watching your distancing, washing your hands and avoiding crowds and indoor events.”

Permit Center Update

To continue to ensure the safety of both visitors and staff, the Permit Center on the 4th floor of City Hall will remain closed for in-person business until Dec. 1, 2020.
