Last week the Johnson County Fiscal Court and the City of Paintsville announced that Trick-or-Treat will happen throughout the county on Oct. 31 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
In the regular meeting of the Johnson County Fiscal Court on Oct. 12, commissioners officially voted to set that date and time.
Judge-Executive Mark McKenzie said, “We are obviously recommending that folks take the necessary precautions. There are guidelines out there from the Kentucky Department of Public Health- some recommendations of how something like Trick-or-Treat that you might not be an issue for COVID-19 can be. So they’ve put some recommendations out there and we really encourage folks to look at those guidelines and make the adjustments you think are necessary to protect your families and the people that might be coming to your houses for Trick-or-Treat. We hope everybody has a good time at Halloween this year.”
Likewise, Paintsville Mayor Bill Mike Runyon addressed the topic during Monday’s meeting of the Paintsville City Council and urged residents of Paintsville to adhere to the guidelines set forth by DPH.
