Apple supplying millions of masks to medical workers; Greek life at OU is grappling with the effects of coronavirus pandemic

Today is Tuesday, April 7, 200. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Apple has been busy doing its part to help people stay safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

The tech giant has been working with governments around the world to distribute over 20 million face masks. Its efforts will now shift to producing and shipping face shields across the U.S., according to a statement from Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook.

Face shields will be given to medical workers specifically. Those shields were first distributed to Kaiser hospital facilities in the Santa Clara valley earlier this week.

The company is expecting to ship out 1 million masks by the end of the week, and its efforts are only expected to increase in order to support the medical community around the world.
