For nearly 30 years, the North Coast Journal
has been covering the stories and people you care about in Humboldt County. We’re proud to share our coverage in print
for free so everyone — with or without internet access or the means to subscribe to a paper — can stay informed, especially during the current COVID-19 crisis.
This week, our ongoing COVID-19 reporting included daily case updates
, a story
about the life of the first Humboldt County resident to die of COVID-19, a look
inside Alder Bay Assisted Living amid an outbreak, how the pandemic is impacting
food distribution chains, whether restaurants
can get by after being allowed to re-open and a look at Oyster Fest's plans
to go virtual. Plus we've got a column
about how parents are coping with distance learning (spoiler: it's hard) and an editorial
looking at the white privilege that underlies protests against shelter-in-place orders. And that's just the COVID-19 stuff. We were also on the scene when hundreds hit the streets of Eureka to protest
the death of George Floyd, to detail the terms
of former Eureka City Manager's six-figure severance agreement with the city and more. It’s been a lot to keep up with.
For the first time in our history, the Journal
has created a way for readers to pitch in to help keep our mission going and the newsroom humming through these unprecedented times. (Click here
