With concerns and precautions growing due to COVID-19, the world has had to adapt. Yesterday, the University of Michigan moved all classes online, cancelled major events, pulled all current study abroad programs, as well as those scheduled for spring and summer, and cancelled sports. While campus remains open, many students are heading home to be with family and take classes remotely.
The Michigan Daily has to adapt, too. Friday’s paper will be The Daily’s last edition in print for the 2020 winter term. Because the vast majority of our print papers are distributed to classroom buildings, it doesn’t make sense financially or environmentally to print a daily paper that won’t get picked up.
But we’re still here. And we’re bringing you the news every hour, every day of the week. For the rest of the semester, our staff will continue working tirelessly to keep the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor communities informed. Here are the various ways to keep up with The Daily for the next six weeks.
Check our website, michigandaily.com, for our latest print and multimedia content. Follow us on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Our handle on all platforms is @michigandaily. Subscribe to our YouTube channel at The Michigan Daily. Subscribe to our weekly newsletter, The Daily Digest, to get each week’s most pressing stories straight in your inbox.
Additionally, if you find yourself missing our print edition, we will continue putting together a PDF version of our paper each Monday through Friday to upload on our issuu. And we’re working to compile a daily roundup of stories in a concise, user-friendly way to push out each day on social media so you can click through our stories on your phone.
It is our responsibility to bring you the content you need every day of the week, and nothing will change that. Every one of our staff members is dedicated to our mission.
The Michigan Daily is here to listen, write and report as always.
