A message from WBUR CEO & GM Margaret Low:
The coronavirus is a once-in-a-generation crisis that is touching our lives in profound and unsettling ways. We’re all trying to comprehend the enormity of what is unfolding. Just know this — WBUR will be here for you throughout. We're doubling down on our reporting, on-air and online, with deep, reliable, up-to-the-minute coverage. We believe our job is to be your indispensable source of news, information, conversation and occasionally comfort, as we make our way through these difficult times — together.
As NPR covers the essential stories across the country and around the world, we’ve launched a coronavirus news desk to monitor what is happening here at home. Our local reporters are covering the science, the testing, the research, as well as the impact of this virus on our health systems, schools, business, sports and life.
We’re talking to local decision-makers on a daily basis. We’re also collecting your pressing questions and will have our reporters, editors and subject matter experts provide answers. While we navigate this uncharted territory, we promise to cover other stories that delight and distract along the way.
For your convenience, I’ve put together a list of resources that might make life a little easier in the days and weeks ahead. I hope you get a chance to read the stories below.
