It's that time again. Here are more good news stories from the outbreak . . .

1. Neighbors in Milwaukee put on a bunch of inflatable T-rex costumes and organized a dinosaur parade the other day. They stayed six feet away at all times, and marched through town to cheer people up. Especially kids.

2.  Mini parades where people drive by in their cars are really taking off too. An elementary school principal in California helped organize a big one to cheer up a five-year-old kid after his birthday party got cancelled.

3. More and more businesses are stepping up in big ways.  Lowe's is donating $10 million worth of protective gear.  Ford and 3M are working together on a new respirator that uses repurposed car parts. And Intel just announced it's donating a million protective items like masks and gloves that they had in storage.

4. A company in upstate New York that makes 3-D printers came up with a simple plastic faceguard that hospitals can print out and snap together. They posted the instructions for free, and they've been downloaded thousands of times already.

5. There are more and more ways to keep your kids busy and entertained. For example, an art studio in Ohio called McHarper Manor is now offering free online art classes to kids all over the world.

6. A lady in Indiana brought her 89-year-old neighbor some groceries the other day, and noticed she didn't look well. But instead of keeping her distance, she laid her on the couch and called 911. It turned out the woman didn't have the virus . . . she was having a HEART ATTACK, and the neighbor saved her life.
