Halloween arrived amid rising COVID cases in Utah this year, forcing people to get creative with their holiday planning.
With coronavirus spreading rapidly in Utah, health officials asked residents to be careful to wear masks and avoid large social gatherings on the holiday.
Gov. Gary Herbert said on Twitter that committing to not socialize with people outside of your household is the best thing individuals can do to stop the virus. He asked Utahns to resist the temptation to gather with extended family and friends.
Despite this, Utah parties were still advertised online. A Purge-themed party in Ogden was listed on Eventbrite. The advertisement said masks would be required and social-distancing encouraged.
