BEDFORD, Va. (WFXR) — The Town of Bedford is encouraging residents to plan ahead and exercise caution while participating in Halloween activities this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a Facebook post, those who choose to take part in trick-or-treating or other Halloween-related activities should be mindful of recommendations and policies related to Executive Orders of the Governor of Virginia, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Town officials also ask residents to use flashlights when walking on neighborhood streets and to supervise children as they travel from house to house. Drivers should also stay alert and use caution while traveling on October 31.
