Here are a few more good news stories from the outbreak . . .
1. A guy in Idaho celebrated his birthday last week in a pretty generous way. He sent some of his employees to a grocery store with $5,000, and had them pay for random people’s groceries. He wanted to do it quietly, but the local news tracked him down.
2. Seen anything interesting on your pandemic walks? A 12-year-old boy in Canada went hiking with his dad and found a 69-million-year-old dinosaur fossil.
3. Oregon hospitals are now allowing parents to wear clear, plastic facemasks when they visit newborns in intensive care. They did it so the babies can see their full face, not just their eyes. Research shows it’s important for early development and bonding.
4. A family in the Dallas area did something fun to lift people’s spirits back in March, and now it’s a mini tourist attraction. They went to a park and started leaving brightly painted rocks next to a trail. Then people who heard about it started MAILING them rocks. Now 2,500 of them line the trail, and the town made it an official part of the park.
