Health Department talks Halloween safety in the age of COVID-19

Belmont County

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.
