WHITE CITY, Utah — On Thursday, Utah Governor Gary Herbert announced Halloween will go on as scheduled despite another record day of COVID-19 positive cases.

To celebrate her favorite holiday, Amber Gustaveson got creative to make Halloween both spooky and socially distanced.

Her solution? A treat tube.

“This doesn’t take a lot of skill. I think I could do that,” said Gustaveson

Made from a little PVP pipe and a lot of creativity, she will drop down goodies from about eight feet away into the open bags of trick-or-treaters at the end of the driveway.

“It’s good to have something to look forward to and I think it is also important, too, to be adaptable. We can still have this happen and we can have it be safe and fun,” Gustaveson said.

On Thursday, Governor Herbert urged families to enjoy Halloween but remain physically distanced.

Don’t crowd front doors while trick-or-treating, instead go up one family at a time.

Wear masks under costumes.

Wait to eat candy at home after its wiped down with sanitized wipes.

“It’s important to still have some of those social interactions if you can do it safely,” said Isaiah Johnson.
