Police urge town residents to stick to Covid-19 rules on Halloween

POLICE are urging Evesham and Pershore residents to stick to Covid-19 guidelines on Halloween.

Chief Superintendent Sue Thomas of West Mercia Police said: “We want to get the balance right between ensuring everyone is doing their bit to prevent the spread of coronavirus by following the law whilst not stopping people from having a good time.

“As in previous years, we will have an increased number of officers on duty and will be carrying out additional high visibility patrols to ensure that anti-social behaviour remains low.

“We will also be engaging with those out and about and encouraging them to act responsibly and reminding them to follow Covid-19 laws.

“Where we need to though, we will take enforcement action.”

She added that anyone with Covid-19 symptoms shouldn’t take part in any in-person Halloween festivities, including giving out sweets to trick-or-treaters.
