Adam: It's no treat to fall for COVID trick at Halloween

  Adam: It's no treat to fall for COVID trick at Halloween It should really come as no surprise that Ottawa and two other regions in Ontario have been put under partial shutdown. The surging numbers speak volumes, and that’s why we should treat the pandemic with all seriousness, leaving no room for doubt about what steps should be taken to fight the virus. That’s why Canada’s chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam’s green-lighting of trick-or-treating, albeit with a caveat, comes as a disappointment. Tam says kids can go ahead with the Halloween tradition if they can physically distance and wear masks.

The COVID-19 pandemic means this will be a very different Halloween. The Quebec government is allowing trick-or-treating but has placed a number of conditions on the practice, including that children go out only with members of their household and stay close to home; that treats be placed in individual bags and left where trick-or-treaters can take them; and that the treats children bring home be quarantined for at least 24 hours.

Although pumpkins, ghosts and goblins have been spotted on front yards everywhere, some annual Halloween events have been cancelled: Ivan Dow, for instance, whose elaborate Halloween haunted yard setup behind his Dorval home has drawn great crowds each year for more than three decades, decided not to go ahead this year.

The Montreal Gazette spoke with five students in Coyne’s homeroom about their inventions — and about Halloween.

Twelve-year-old Sofia Simetic called her invention, a battery-powered toy vehicle that reaches trick-or-treaters while permitting social distancing, Uber Treats. Usually she goes out trick-or-treating with a group of friends — but that’s not an option this year.

“There probably won’t be as many trick-or-treaters this year, I am guessing,” she said. “I don’t think my parents are exactly comfortable with Halloween …  I might stay home with my family and just watch a movie.”

Using a recyclable plastic container attached with duct tape to an old broomstick, 12-year-old Olivia Potvin designed the Handy Dandy Candy Dispenser.

“Feel the joy of trick-or-treating — but at a distance,” she said in a video in which her eight-year-old brother, Lucas, plays the trick-or-treater.

Olivia and Lucas will go out trick-or-treating on Saturday, accompanied by their parents and having left little bags of candy on the front porch for other children.

“Obviously, we are going to be two metres apart and go to houses where people are outside, so as not to ring the doorbell and cause contamination,” she said.

Twelve-year-old Tarun Philip called the device he designed Tubeious 2020: He fixed cardboard tubes to the railing of the family’s Brossard home. At the bottom of stairs, a length of wood was attached to a pedal he borrowed from his mother’s sewing machine: pressing on the pedal displaces the wood — and the candy is released.

Tarun and his family will draw the blinds on Saturday night and watch television — and he’s fine with that. Halloween “is not that important to me this year,” he said.

Cardboard tubes that once held wrapping paper also figure in 13-year-old Thomas Gammon’s invention, the All-Canadian Candy Delivery System. Its slogan: Combat coronavirus — Canuck style. The tubes are attached to a hockey stick; the person handing out treats holds the blade of the hockey stick at a downward angle so the candy slides into the trick-or-treater’s bag.

Trick or Treat? Experts divided on letting kids go out on Halloween due to COVID risk

  Trick or Treat? Experts divided on letting kids go out on Halloween due to COVID risk As COVID-19 case numbers continue to creep up in much of the country, some parents are feeling spooked about letting their children trick-or-treat on Halloween. Should they carry on with the door-to-door tradition, or find a different way to celebrate the eerie annual holiday? While some infectious disease pediatricians say now is not the time for trick-or-treating, especially in COVID hot spots, others contend that the outdoor nature of the activity makes it fairly low-risk. Dr. Anna Banerji, an associate professor at the University of Toronto's School of Public Health, says trick-or-treating should "probably be cancelled this year.'' "We've ...

This year no one from Thomas’s family will be giving out candy or trick-or-treating. Instead, they’ll watch a movie on Saturday night.

“I don’t necessarily want to go because I am kind of nervous,” he said.

Another year, 12-year-old Emma Hlopasko would be out trick-or-treating or attending a Halloween party. But this year, like some of her other classmates, she’ll be celebrating at home — watching horror movies and making sweet treats with her older sister and her father and his girlfriend.

Emma invented a kind of projectile/slingshot — it features elastic bands, duct tape, an empty egg carton and chopsticks — from which Halloween candies are flung at the bag or basket of the trick-or-treater and called it Slink.

Halloween will be observed at Centennial Regional High, part of the Riverside School Board, on Friday with costumes — Coyne, for instance, plans to go as a nerd, wearing taped-together glasses, a pocket protector, too-short, too-high-waisted pants held up with suspenders — and, for students in Secondary One and Two, a pumpkin-decorating contest.

“The students are grappling with so much,” she said, “but they impress and surprise with the way they have rallied.”

Families prepare for pandemic-era Halloween with public health restrictions in place .
TORONTO — Canadians may be putting the final touches on their costumes and digging into their candy bowls like every other year, but the country is plunging into a Halloween unlike any before. Many families will forgo trick or treating Saturday on the advice of public health officials wanting to quell the spread of COVID-19 in hot spots, while others in provinces with fewer cases of the virus will head out for the annual festivities while donning masks and keeping their distance. The patchwork of recommendations has some Canadians dreaming up new ways to mark the holiday with candy scavenger hunts or using chutes, pipes and tongs to pass out treats.
