Dear Reader,

When faced with a fast-breaking emergency like the coronavirus pandemic, our journalists focus on providing you with accurate, trustworthy information that you need to navigate the crisis, protect your family and help your neighbors.

As part of this commitment, we are providing all coronavirus coverage free of charge online, allowing you to access clear, up-to-date information on COVID-19, how it’s impacting our local community and how to help slow the spread of the virus.

So many of us have been affected by the outbreak as the number of confirmed cases continues to rise, schools and businesses remain closed indefinitely and sports seasons have come to a grinding halt. Our journalists have been tracking every new development of this pandemic, from covering news conferences to talking with parents, doctors, investors, financial planners, teachers, elected officials and others who have been significantly affected by this health crisis.

And we’ll continue to do just that. Reporters will dig into what’s going on and what it means to your lives. We’ll explain the fears and debunk the fiction in this fast-moving story. For the latest updates and news about COVID-19, we invite you to sign up for USA TODAY’S Coronavirus Watch newsletter at
