Here are a few more good news stories from the outbreak...

1.  A high school teacher in Wisconsin welcomed kids back with a parody of the "Friends" theme where all the lyrics are about distance learning.  (It's on the teacher's Facebook page.)

2.  A woman in New York kept her granddaughter entertained in lockdown by building houses for mythical creatures.  They made 14 tiny homes outside for fairies to live in, and did a tour that other kids could go on.  They posted a virtual version on YouTube.

3.  A few months ago, a guy in Virginia bought lunch for his town's entire police force, just to say thanks . . . all 130 cops, secretaries, and custodians.  But he felt like it still wasn't enough.  So this month, he did the same thing for the entire fire department.

4.  This could be huge:  Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have a new drug that could help you make antibodies WITHOUT getting the virus.  They say it could protect you for weeks or months, and also might help people RECOVER from the virus.  (It's worth mentioning Jonas Salk was also at Pitt when he came up with the polio vaccine.)
