We all have been dealing with Covid-19 throughout 2020, and come October, it’ll impact trick or treating. If you’re attending or planning a trick-or-treat event in your neighborhood, make sure you follow these safety tips to stay safe and healthy during the pandemic.
Limit high-touch surfaces
Pack lots of sanitizer & cleaning wipes
Hand out goodies instead of letting children grab them
Incorporate your mask into your costume
Although it’s frustrating to have to wear a mouth mask.. This is a holiday where you’re allowed to dress up however you want, it is still important to cover your face and protect other people.
Instead of letting the mask ruin your costume, embrace it! Many superheroes and movie villains wear masks, so find a way to make it a focal point of your costume.
The passing of our Founder Jack Harold Smith.

West–Mark successfully passed the interim ISO 9001 audit! I would like to congratulate and thank all West-Mark team members without their help and participation, we would not have achieved this.
The corrective action plan presented by West-Mark to address the nonconformance has also been accepted by the certifying agency.
We will have to continue the good work and follow our policies and procedures. We have this year to implement the corrective action and effectiveness of the implementation will be reviewed in audit to be held in July 2021 next year.
