Halloween 2020


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) have issued guidance for Halloween. Unless new guidance is issued prior to the end of the month, James City County feels that those who want to participate in trick-or-treating should make that decision for their families. For those who choose to participate, James City County trick-or-treating hours will be 6-8 p.m. on Oct. 31 for children ages 12 and under.

CDC Guidance:

VDH Guidance:

Trick-or-treating is classified as a Moderate to High Risk activity, and the County shares and encourages safe practices provided by the CDC and VDH. Households that do not want to participate should turn off their porch lights.
