2020 Halloween Activities
The City of Jonesville recommends that those choosing to participate in trick-or-treating on Saturday, October 31st in the City limits do so between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. These hours are the same as previous years.
Motorists are reminded to be aware of additional pedestrian traffic during those hours and travel with caution. Residents who participate should follow the recommendations of the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency (www.bhsj.org) and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (www.michigan.gov/coronavirus) to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Continue safe practices like: wear masks; practice distancing if not from the same household; households with a positive case should not participate; individuals with symptoms should not participate; and follow the guidance of public health officials.
