Maureen Dunne found herself facing the unimaginable when her children became part of a frightening statistic.

In DuPage County, 147 kids younger than 10 have developed COVID-19, accounting for less than 2% of all confirmed cases.

Three of those cases are Dunne’s triplets. The College of DuPage trustee and her husband, Brett, braced “for a battle” caring for not one, not two, but three sick toddlers.

Avoiding intimate contact was impossible, but the Naperville parents re-engineered family routines so they wouldn’t catch the virus and could nurse their 3-year-olds, Sophia, Sylvie and Alex, back to health.
