Health and safety at Halloween

By Staff | Sep 25, 2020

At the September 8 Town Council meeting, the Shepherdstown Town Council unanimously adopted the following motion relating to Halloween/trick-or-treating related activities.

“The Town Council does not endorse any Halloween events and discourages any Halloween related activities, including town-wide trick-or-treating and BooFest, based upon COVID-19 safety concerns.”

This decision applies to the corporate limits of Shepherdstown.

The Shepherdstown Town Council made the decision to discourage and not endorse Halloween activities very thoughtfully. This decision regarding one of Shepherdstown’s premier events was difficult, but health and safety must be our number one priority.
