Trick or Treating in Knox County Gets Green Light From Mayor Jacobs with Some Guidelines

Knox County Trick-or-Treaters will be hitting the streets this Halloween.

Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs announcing neighborhood Halloween activities may go on as planned on October 31st.

The Mayor has been in contact with the Knox County Health Department. They offer these recommendations for trick-or-treating safely :

Wear a face covering when you can’t maintain appropriate physical distance. A costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth face covering and wearing one in addition to a cloth face covering is not recommended.
Carry hand sanitizer and use it often.
Refrain from having children select their own treats from a bowl. Consider creative alternatives for contactless candy distribution like using a “grabber” tool or candy chute or placing treats in individual baggies and placing them in an easy-to-grab location.
Avoid homemade treats.
Consider wiping all candy wrappers with sanitizing wipes upon arriving home and wash hands before and after eating candy/treats.
Avoid large crowds and trick-or-treat with your household or a small group of neighbors/friends.

There is no custom code to display.
