The City of Monroe Common Council’s Public Safety Committee elected to set no hours nor formal Halloween plans for 2020, due to concerns over the coronavirus. There are no sanctioned activities planned.
The Committee followed the guidelines/examples of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Green County Public Health Department, and many other communities in the region. The Committee recommended that persons follow those guidelines when deciding if they will allow their children to trick or treat door to door.
If residents do not wish to take part in Trick or Treat, or hand out candies, etc., then they should not turn on their home porch lights. If they wish to, then leave the light on.
Those persons that choose to trick or treat should only visit a small group of close, known persons, but if they choose to go door to door, they should only visit those locations with porch lights on.
The City of Monroe wishes all persons a safe Halloween.
