An Ohio dad's "candy chute" is gaining attention from thousands of people as parents around the country search for ways to more safely celebrate Halloween amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
It's a simple idea: A cardboard tube attached to an inclined handrail. Andrew Beattie, of Cincinnati, says he made the simple solution in a Friday night craft session with his 6-year-old daughter.
Frank Vogel: Lakers may start Dwight Howard in Game 2
Howard proved to be a difference-maker in Game 1, posting 13 points, three rebounds and two blocks in just 16 minutes. The reasoning makes sense. Howard is a vertical threat who makes life difficult for Nikola Jokic with his rolls to the rim. On the other end, he is also a slightly more disciplined and versatile defender than McGee is.Howard admitted he had a hard time with his limited minutes last series. Now however, it looks like he could really be getting his moment to shine.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
To help trick-or-treaters unfamiliar with the concept, a helpful ghost sits at the bottom of the tube, bearing the message "place buckets here." Inhe plans on using a gloved hand to place the candy at the top of the tube, allowing it to slide into the bucket from 6 feet away.
Beattie says people around the country can craft a "candy chute" themselves to help make trick-or-treating safer this year — or maybe they'll come up with an even better idea.
"Ultimately, I wanted it to be something that encourages folks to get creative with ways to stay safe," Beattie wrote in a message to USA TODAY on Wednesday. He hopes it will help people safely celebrate a beloved holiday: "Our country needs that right now."
For those who don't want to craft their own chute,.
Candy Chute LLC was incorporated just days before Beattie's post went viral, according to the state's Division of Revenue & Enterprise Services. The company aims to "Save Halloween 2020" with their product, according to their website.

Health experts have expressed.
Dr. Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Health and UC Davis Children’s Hospital, says families should avoid trick-or-treating. He says even in areas with a low risk of transmission, the door-to-door activity could spur an outbreak.
Other experts have stressed the risk will vary based on a number of factors. Dr. Sandra Kesh, an infectious disease physician at Westmed Medical Group in Purchase, New York, said it's possible to safely trick-or-treat this year, but there are caveats.
She says if COVID-19 is not well-controlled in an area, locals should refrain. Local health departments and government websites typically offer public tracking of coronavirus infections. Enclosed spaces, like apartment buildings, should be avoided, too, she says.
Kesh advises limiting trick-or-treating to three or four kids. Before heading out, parents should ask if the family they are joining has been taking precautions and wearing masks. Parents can wipe down candy or let it sit for a couple of days if they are worried about surface transmission of the virus.
