In the release the city gave a number of suggestions for citizens to follow to stay safe from the coronavirus while celebrating Halloween.
Suggestions include wearing a mask and social distancing, but also listed high, medium and low risk Halloween activities.
High risk activities include partying, going to an indoor haunted house, trick-or-treating, having a trunk or treat, going on hayrides or tractor rides, and traveling to a rural fall festival that is not in your community if you live in an area with community spread of COVID-19.
Then Sunday the city put out a statement regarding the holiday.
"The City would like to remind everyone that we do not schedule times or dates for Halloween or trick-or-treating – that is up to each individual." stated the City of San Angelo on its Facebook. "If you do go trick-or-treating, then we ask that everyone wear a mask, remember to practice social distancing from people who are not from your immediate household and make sure you wash your hands once you get home. If you are sick or not feeling well, then please stay home."
The post also stated that if a citizen is going to have an event where more than 10 people are expected to be there then that citizen must get permission from County Judge Steve Floyd, Mayor Brenda Gunter, or local health authority.
