When I wrote the article for the April edition of Positively Naperville, I had hoped that by the time people were reading the article the crisis would be over. As I write the article for the May edition, I think of all the ways our lives have changed.

Baseball season may open without any fans in the stands, graduation ceremonies are canceled or will be done on a remote basis. There have been so many changes in our daily lives.

One of the most noticeable changes has been the number of people wearing facemasks.

The Navy issued a directive that all personnel on naval bases or facilities have to wear facemasks that have four layers of fabric. This directive includes when Navy personnel and their families shop at the commissary or exchange. This meant that every person, including children, would need a mask. And, of course, while the U.S. Navy had some masks, they definitely did not have enough to provide masks for everyone who now needed them.
