Pike County Cancels Halloween

As counties make decisions on Halloween events, Pike County has opted to cancel all door-to-door trick or treating. So this week the Pike County Fiscal Court voted against allowing traditional trick-or-treat and trunk-or-treat events.“I would rather for them to miss one trick-or-treat event than to get this illness bring it home to one of us, or see something happen to somebody else in our community,” said Pike County Judge Executive Ray Jones. “This could be catastrophic. A lot of people don’t recognize the risk.”Jones says the decision was made from guidance from public health officials as COVID-19 cases increase throughout the county.
