CABELL COUNTY, WV (WOWK) – The Village of Barboursville, along with the Cabell County Commission, has announced it has designated a day for Halloween trick-or-treating during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to The Village of Barboursville’s official Facebook page, trick-or-treat night will be on Thursday, Oct. 29 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Local officials say they do have health and safety guidelines for families to follow during trick-or-treating such as:

  • When sitting handing out candy, sit outside or keep an eye on your door to avoid having too many hands touching the doors.
  • Wear medical masks and keep hand sanitizer with you and use frequently while trick or treating.
  • Stay with a group of friends or stay with family to keep large crowds from gathering.
  • Wait for the trick-or-treaters ahead of you to move on before approaching the next house.

Officials also say that if you do not wish to participate in trick-or-treating for this, you can leave your porch light off.
