"I live across the street from the greatest landmark in all of Portland—the Dockside. Obviously, this area has been developed, and there are condos and townhouses down here. But the fact that even as they built a new office building basically on the Dockside, the Dockside still remains. So you have this Old Portland relic combined with New Portland development. They were like, 'No, we're not knocking down the Dockside to build condos, we can have both.' And I love that." — Colin O'Brady, endurance athlete

The story you’re about to read is a result of our reporters working hard. They cover the effects of the coronavirus, keep an eye on governments’ response, and look out for the safety and well-being of Portlanders. With every turn of this story, we attempt to bring you the news and information you need to stay safe.
We can only do this because of you.
