What you need to know about trick-or-treating in your community

Beggars Night — or trick-or-treat night — is just around the corner.

Amid ongoing safety precautions around the spread of COVID-19, many are left wondering what Halloween 2020 will look like around Dayton.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said decisions about trick-or-treating will be made by communities, ideally in consultation with local health departments. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is discouraging door-to-door trick-or-treating, indoor costume parties, haunted houses, tractor rides and rural fall festivals, labeling them high-risk COVID-19 activities.

Ultimately, the decisions rest with each community.
