Preparations for National Tom Sawyer Days are underway in Hannibal Tuesday as carnival rides begin to go up.
Managers with the carnival company said this year they're keeping COVID-19 in mind.
They said employees will be practicing social distancing, and wearing masks and face shields.
Hand sanitizer stations will also be on the premises.
"We have an entire COVID-19 plan, it's going through the health department as well, and our industry has been working on it for about two months. Amusement parks are part of it and everything," said Archway Amusements manager Theresa Noerper.
The carnival will open to the public Wednesday afternoon.
