As always this is not to give way to more panic about COVID-19. This post is for information only. This is from a email I received and I thought it was important to share it with you.
These are unprecedented times that have dramatically changed our daily lives. While the uncertainty can be unsettling, I believe we will get through this together and emerge stronger.
We recognize there is great responsibility in delivering critical news and information to our nearly 900 million users across the globe. Never has it been more important, that accurate and reliable news is at the forefront. Verizon Media, the parent company of AOL, Yahoo, HuffPost, TechCrunch, has always been committed to our mission of creating trusted content– and our resolve is even stronger today. As we navigate through this new normal we find ourselves in, rest assured that you can always expect credible and trusted content across our platforms.
That’s why we are doubling down on our focus to support our communities and have a positive impact on society during this challenging time. We have created coronavirus hubs on AOL, covid19.aol.com and on Yahoo, covid19.yahoo.com, that includes the news in real time about the pandemic across the globe, to keep our users up-to-date with accurate and reliable information.
Communities are core to the wellness of our society. We know these are trying times for many of us, so we are also producing more mental health-focused content across brands, like huffpost.com, to support those that may be experiencing increased levels of anxiety and depression. As well, we are developing content that provides resources and tips on how to stay healthy mentally, physically and emotionally.
Finally, we are donating advertising space across Verizon Media’s properties to organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) to help amplify their message.
These are no doubt stressful times, but I hope through a sense of community we can not only survive but come out of this with more connection and support for each other. It reminds me of a great African proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Be well and stay safe.
