As we bid farewell to September 2020 and welcome in October, we can look forward to the first full month of fall with its soon to be changing leaves, pumpkin spiced everything, and of course Halloween.

It's been said so many times already in 2020, but it feels like it bears repeating - just about everything is obviously going to be at least a little different this year due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

With that in mind, on Thursday afternoon, Beachwood released their official plans for trick-or-treating for Halloween 2020.

Here are the key points:

  • Trick-or-treating will be on Saturday, October 31st between 2 - 8 P.M.
  • Beachwood officials ask families who choose to take part in trick-or-treating to wear face masks, observe social distancing guidelines, and carry hand sanitizer.
  • For households who will be giving out candy, officials ask that you leave your porch light on.
  • Households who do not wish to take part are asked to leave their porch lights off or to put a sign in front of their homes.

And of course, the traditional trick-or-treat safety guidelines that are reinforced every year are encouraged like always. Things like parents accompanying their children and carrying flashlights and for motorists to be particularly observant with the increased amount of foot traffic.

Here's the full official announcement on Beachwood's trick-or-treat plans from the official Facebook page of Beachwood Recreation:
