After receiving a few emails chastising us for lack of efficient coronavirus coverage, I thought I would explain why there has been a decrease in activity from the Auburn Examiner recently.
COVID-19 Coverage on the Auburn Examiner
For those unaware, the Auburn Examiner is primarily run by one person: me (Elizabeth). We have great volunteer writers who submit articles, but the Auburn Examiner is not their primary focus.
As I have underlying health conditions, the COVID-19 pandemic is something I am personally taking very seriously. Thankfully I do not have COVID-19. However, I must focus on managing my health to ensure I do not get it, or get in a position that would require valuable medical resources.
At this time I do not have the capacity to provide the standard of fact-checking required to publish proper coverage on COVID-19 (coronavirus), or many other current stories. If a major COVID-19 update occurs, we will endeavor to publish it. For regular updates, please refer to the following resources:
As my health allows, other stories will be published. Managing the Auburn Examiner and ensuring we provide the quality coverage our readers deserve is something I take very seriously. But I can not do that if I am unwell.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to also acknowledge that sometimes typos and spelling or grammatical errors occasionally occur in our publication. Being essentially a one person production, things can slip through sometimes. I do my best to address these as quickly as I become aware of them. I’d like to thank you for your understanding that mistakes happen.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this time of decreased publication. I can not express how much your continued support of the Auburn Examiner means to me and the team.
On that final note, here’s some cute animals for good measure:
