BUENA VISTA, Va. (WFXR) — Unlike some communities, the City of Buena Vista decided not to set a date, time, and additional restrictions for trick-or-treating amid the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Buena Vista residents who choose to take part in trick-or-treating are encouraged to plan ahead; be cautious; and keep any policies or guidelines from the Commonwealth, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), or the CDC in mind.

For example, city officials recommend people use flashlights while walking along neighborhood streets, as well as keep an eye on their children as they go from house to house.

In addition, anyone driving in or near a Buena Vista neighborhood during the evening is asked to exercise extra caution due to the likely presence of trick-or-treaters.
