Covid Wire is a news aggregator focused on delivering hyperlocal, accurate and up-to-date information around COVID-19. While the Coronavirus pandemic is global, its impact on America’s communities is local. In this chaotic and unpredictable time, people are seeking information that helps them better understand what’s going on in their local community, and how it affects their lives. They want to know about testing in their area, which grocery stores deliver, and which public institutions are closed.
We’re a volunteer team of 16+ journalists, designers, engineers, editors, and builders. Each of us were frustrated by the challenges of navigating the COVID-19 information landscape and decided to do something about it. We all come from different parts of the country, bringing different lenses and expertise to the crises.
We’re a couple weeks away from launching our public release site in our first select cities. You can read more about the initiative here:
