WINDSOR, ONT. -- WFCU Credit Union is bringing the fun and excitement of trick-or-treating to Windsor-Essex children this Halloween in a safe and contactless way.
The WFCU Credit Union Trick-or-Treat Drive Thru Event will be hosted at four drive-thru locations in Amherstburg, Leamington, South Windsor and Tecumseh on Halloween afternoon, Saturday, October 31, 2020, between 3 and 5 p.m.
“As a result of Covid-19, we understand that many are looking for safe alternatives to traditional trick-or-treating,” said a WFCU news release.
Strict Covid-19 safety measures will be in place including:
- All visitors must remain in their vehicles
- Contactless delivery of Halloween treat bags
- Drive thru drawers will be sanitized between each vehicle
- Mask wearing and hand sanitization
Residents are asked to refrain from participating in the event if they have had close contact with someone diagnosed with Covid-19, travelled outside of Canada or to an area with a current outbreak, or had cold or flu-like symptoms within the last 14 days.
Children will receive a Halloween treat bag filled with activities and candy to enjoy.
