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 Downtown Beloit Association will also not run any Halloween events this year.

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