Dear Gazette readers:
These are difficult times. For most of us, the coronavirus crisis has been a time of unprecedented upheaval, uncertainty and fear.
What does it all mean — for our health, our families, our jobs and our futures?
At The Daily Gazette, our journalists have been working tirelessly to answer these questions and many more than have come up during the COVID-19 pandemic.
How many people have tested positive locally? How many have died? Has anyone died in the local nursing homes?
Now, in these difficult times, we’re turning to you to support our work by purchasing a subscription or making a donation to help fund our daily efforts. With your support, these are the questions we’re continuing to report on.
Every day, our reporters and photographers have been working the streets and the phones to answer these critical questions. And every day they answer the bell with their timely and well-documented reports from the front lines in the Capital Region. Behind the scenes, the rest of our editorial team — including sportswriters, copy editors and digital producers – has been wholly focused on covering the COVID-19 story.
During this critical time, everyone here at the Gazette is working to provide important news and information to keep our community safe and connected. But our ability to serve our community is being threatened by economic challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay-at-home orders, business closures and school shutdowns are contributing to the massive instability in the local business landscape. Despite all of these challenges, the Gazette will remain committed to serving the community for many years to come, just as we’ve done unfailingly for the past 125 years.
Thank you, be well and please keep reading
