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.

Before you keep reading, we ask you to join our membership program, Friends of Willamette Week, which helps support our journalism.
You know because of WW. But we exist because of you.
