What you need to know about trick-or-treating in your community

Beggars Night — or trick-or-treat night — is just days away.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine left decisions about trick-or-treating to communities, ideally in consultation with local health departments. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is discouraging door-to-door trick-or-treating, indoor costume parties, haunted houses, tractor rides and rural fall festivals, labeling them high-risk COVID-19 activities.

For most communities, there will be trick-or-treat night. Here’s a schedule by community:
