[ARCHIVED] City Police Will Not Close Streets for Halloween


The Brevard Police Department has spoken to representatives of the neighborhoods that have traditionally given out candy on Halloween and suggested not doing traditional trick-or-treat for this year.  Chief Phil Harris said, “Transylvania County residents have done a great job of keeping the spread of Covid-19 under control.  Every resident deserves credit for this. Halloween is a special time of year for our kids, but the risk of doing traditional trick-or-treat activities is too great to ignore.  We are asking that parents seek other activities and options that are more easily managed than traditional trick-or-treating.  We will not close the streets as we have in the past to discourage these activities.   The risk of spreading Covid-19 is too great to ignore.”
