BELMONT COUNTY (WTRF) —
Halloween will look a lot different this year in the age of COVID-19.
In Ohio, the governor and state health department have issued some guidelines.
They strongly recommend that hay rides or haunted houses be canceled. They also say in-person Halloween parties with 10 or more people should not be held.
But each community is going forward with trick-or-treat…in its own way.
Rob Sproul, Belmont County deputy health commissioner, says social distancing is the key.
