More “Good News” Stories from the Coronavirus Outbreak – Friday Edition
Here are a few more good news stories from the outbreak . . .
1. If you’re ready to travel, Hawaii is about to open back up. Right now, you have to quarantine for two weeks after you arrive. But that’s ending on October 15th. As long as you test negative before you fly, you won’t have to quarantine.
2. And 88-year-old guy in Massachusetts named Brad Hathaway has been on a mission to walk 24,901 miles . . . the exact circumference of the Earth. He started walking three miles a day in 1988 when he was dealing with some health problems. And he’s hoping to hit his goal next month. He’s raising money for charity on GoFundMe, and he’ll walk his final mile on October 3rd.
3. Hershey’s doesn’t want to cancel Halloween. So they launched an interactive map that shows how risky it is to trick-or-treat in every county in America. They also list alternate activities if it’s too risky. You can check it out at Halloween2020.org.
4. A history teacher in Austin took distance learning to a whole new level last month by crisscrossing the country, and doing virtual history lessons from the locations where they happened. She drove 3,000 miles and hit a bunch of spots like Gettysburg, the Lincoln Memorial, and Colonial Williamsburg. She says she was just looking for a way to make this very weird school year a little more fun and interesting for students.
