Trick-or-Treating Set for Halloween Night in Huntington

Posted October 27, 2020.

HUNTINGTON – The City of Huntington on Tuesday announced its final decision on trick-or-treating: It’s a “go.”

Trick-or-treating is officially set to take place in the City of Huntington from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, October 31. 

Huntington’s COVID-19 Task Force, which has been monitoring COVID-19 data for Huntington County, met Tuesday and approved moving forward with the City’s Halloween plans. 

With some simple precautions, everyone can enjoy a fun Halloween and lower their risk. Here are some things the CDC recommends doing so that you can stay safe and protect others: 

  • Give out treats outdoors.
  • Set up a station with individually bagged treats for trick-or-treaters to grab and go.
  • Wear a mask. (A costume mask is not a substitute for a properly worn cloth mask.)
  • Keep a safe distance in order to avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters.
  • Wash hands before handling treats and use hand sanitizer often.
  • If you are sick, stay home and do not pass out candy.

Residents who choose not to take part should make sure to leave their porch lights off. Trick-or-treaters need to respect the decisions of others who aren’t participating.

Other traditional Halloween activities carry a higher risk of spreading COVID-19 and should be avoided, the CDC and other public health officials recommend. This includes trunk-or-treat events, indoor parties and outdoor parties where attendees are not wearing masks or social distancing.
