An Oklahoma town is getting creative in coping with the coronavirus outbreak.

Community members in the northwestern Oklahoma town of Alva are putting up teddy bears in their windows, so families can drive around and participate in a fun, teddy bear scavenger hunt while still following the social distancing guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Representatives with the city of Alva told KOCO that about 150 homes and businesses are participating in the event this week.
