Trick or Treating
Every Halloween comes with questions on timing and date of trick or treating. The City of Ludington Police Department reccomends that families trick or treat between the hours of 3 and 8 p.m. Trick or treat at homes where families know the resident, or homes that have a porch light on. Carry a flashlight and dress in reflective material if at all possible. Cross the streets at corners using crosswalks and signals. Take extra time if you are out driving to look for children on curbs, behind landscaping and running to and from parked vehicles.
This season, however, we must also reflect on how we can work together to best prevent the spread of any virus. The Ludington Police Department recommends that everyone follow the CDC guidelines when determining if they will participate in going trick or treating with their family, or will participate in handing out candy.
Following is an excerpt from the CDC
Many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses. There are several safer, alternative ways to participate in Halloween. If you may have COVID-19 or you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should not participate in in-person Halloween festivities and should not give out candy to trick-or-treaters.
Lower risk activities
These lower risk activities can be safe alternatives:
