Editor's Notes

The coronavirus is turning life as we know it upside down. We send good health wishes to our global readers and  we want to thank public health workers and medical professionals who are fighting the pandemic on the front lines. Many federal, state and local government officials (elected and staff) have taken a myriad of measures to slow the spread of the virus and its impacts on daily life and the world's economy  and we appreciate their collective efforts. 
We have added a new section about the coronavirus to our weekly e-newsletter, combing through roughly one hundred articles so our readers can keep up-to-date on the status of health care and government responses to the pandemic. Please send us any information you think would be of interest to our readers on this subject.
Please stay safe and healthy, and follow the recommendations of state and county health officials, as well as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Coronavirus information from the state of California may be found  here.  Coronavirus information from the CDC can be found here.
