Tech Scares Away COVID During Halloween

Many states are uncertain how to handle trick-or-treat activities amid COVID this Halloween. But DIY-ers have plenty of good ideas!

The season of spookiness is almost here. But even after this year’s COVID-19 ridden Halloween activities are gone, these clever projects will still be around.

For now, though, all of these mostly do-it-yourself (DIY) projects are designed to either reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus or even destroy it. They will help ensure that this year’s October 31st activities do not become a super spreader event.
