MORRISTOWN, NJ - Mayor Tim Dougherty announced the cancelation of the Annual Trunk or Treat Halloween celebration in Morristown.
"I know a lot of people put a lot of work into it", said Dougherty. "But this is the fourth straight day of over 1000 cases. We saw what happened with the Governor today"
Governor Murphy had to leave today's press conference after learning he was in proximity to someone who tested positive for COVID-19. Read more about that here
"My instincts are telling me that even though the kids love Halloween and trick or treating, but if one person got COVID-19 because of this event, that's one too many. I have to cancel this event", said Dougherty.
Doughtery reminded residents that there is no trick or treating through the downtown district either. However, kids can still go trick-or-treating through neighborhoods, per the Governor's order provided masks are worn and social distance.
"I know its difficult", he said. "We have to be vigilant about it".
