We know that you secretly love Costco for the free food samples. Rejoice because those return later this month.

The free treats had been temporarily suspended due to health concerns over the coronavirus.

The big-box retailer says samples are slated to resume in mid-June, but the experience will be different than what customers have been used to.

Costco's Chief Financial Officer isn't giving too many details away saying only that shoppers won't be able to pick up open samples with their fingers.

What started as a class project is helping to spread positivity during stressful times. A student at Milwaukee Area Technical College is spending his time photographing what he calls the "Faces of COVID-19."

Each photo shows a person with a mask on. Swipe the photo, and you'll see the person with their mask off. His classmates said it was cool to see the reveal behind the mask.

It was "Like- woah- you have a great smile! It made my day." He's photographed more than 60 people so far.

An acclaimed cartoonist is donating new illustrations to hospital workers and patients. Guy Gilchrist is the illustrator behind a "Muppets" inspired comic strip.

His sketches include Kermit, Road Runner, and Beaker. A doctor reached out asking for a couple doodles because not all hospitals have a lot of art. Now Guy's pandemic-inspired sketches will help brighten up hospital rooms across the country.

Gilchrist and the doctor who reached out to him are hoping to publish a children's book as well about the PPE Pals.
