Beloit will not schedule trick-or-treat hours this Halloween
BELOIT, Wis. (WMTV) - The City of Beloit announced Tuesday to not schedule any trick-or-treat hours for this Halloween.
The city reviewed recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health, which both advised to avoid traditional trick-or-treat events.
The CDC considers trick-or-treating as a high risk activity for the spread of COVID-19.

The city asked the public to read the recommendation from DHS, including avoiding large gatherings, in-person parties or socializing at bars.
