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

1.  If you've been using anything you can grab as a homemade face mask, like a t-shirt or bed sheet . . . don't worry.  It's getting the job done. A new study out of the University of Illinois found pretty much all of the household fabrics they tested did a good job blocking droplets when someone talked, coughed, or even sneezed . . . plus people found them more comfortable than medical masks.

2.   A 27-year-old grad student in Colorado raised $85,000 for coronavirus relief by climbing all 58 of the mountains in the state that were at least 14,000 feet.  It took her 78 days and required almost 600 miles of hiking.

3.  Here's a good reminder it's nice to hear once in a while.  Dr. Anthony Fauci had an interview last week where he reminded everyone, quote, "The outbreak will end.  We will get a vaccine."  And he's still predicting it will be ready before the end of the year.
