Lights out and darkness prevails or game on for Halloween?

I don't know what to do for Halloween, if there will be trick-or-treating on my street or not, my city recently advised against it but I was talking with a few of of the nabes and they are planning on it but then they all have kids and teens.

I mentioned it should be a neighborhood only event for residents' kids and any house that wants to participate should set up a table at the end of the driveway and do a driveby trick-or-treat session, like from 5-8 pm, so kids can still trick-or-treat without having to go up to people's houses. The table can be a nice barrier between the children and adults who want to give candy away with masks still having to be worn.

Adults can use large barbeque tongs to take treats and put in the kids' bags. Good idea? Bad idea? I think any risk would be minimal with this, as long as all participants are coughing, sneezing or collapsing.
