LANSING, Ill. (May 16, 2020) – Eight weeks into quarantine, much of Lansing was feeling some level of restlessness. Whether in the it’s-not-safe-to-open-yet or the it’s-not-safe-to-stay-closed camp, long days of mostly passive fighting against an invisible virus—and possibly achieving invisible results—made it difficult for anyone to feel confident, much less victorious. And the absence of traditional annual milestones—most notably school events—made it difficult to feel as though time had been passing at all.
But Lansing residents continued to observe regulations, mark milestones, celebrate life, and look for signs of spring throughout the week.
