Here are the newsroom layoffs, furloughs and closures caused by the coronavirus

It’s getting hard to keep track of the bad news about the news right now. But we have to. Here’s our attempt to collect the layoffs, furloughs, and closures caused by the coronavirus’ critical blow to the economy and journalism in the United States. Please send tips. We’ll try to keep up.

In most cases, these entries link to previously reported stories. In some cases, where there are no links, we’re using relying on tips to help show the full impact of this pandemic.

One more note: We haven’t figured out a way to track the loss of work for freelancers, but please read more about how the pandemic has hurt their livelihoods here.
