Manitowoc says no trick-or-treat

Manitowoc County officials said Friday that they are advising county residents to find new ways to celebrate Halloween that do not involve in-person parties or traditional trick-or-treating.

A press release from Travis Waack, emergency services director for the county, said, “As we look forward to fall and planning Halloween festivities, the State of Wisconsin Department of Health and the Manitowoc County Health Department reminds residents to be safe and healthy to slow the spread of COVID-19. Remember that large gatherings and close contact with people outside of your household increases your risk. So, this year, find new ways to celebrate that don’t involve big in-person parties or traditional trick-or-treating.”
