PRINCETON — The coronavirus pandemic will not stop Halloween’s most popular tradition this year in Princeton.

Trick-or-treat hours were set to be 5-7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31, by the Princeton City Council during Monday’s regular meeting.

Hector Gomez, director of Bureau, Putnam, Marshall County Health Departments, who is also on the City Council said as long as trick-or-treaters wore masks, gloves, stayed 6 feet apart from others and remember to wash their hands after trick-or-treating, it shouldn’t be an issue.

The CDC has deemed traditional trick-or-treating as a higher-risk activity. However, it has ranked one-way trick-or-treating as a moderate-risk activity. One way is where individually wrapped goodie bags are lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance.
