When it comes to coronavirus news, there’s no shortage of misinformation and bad actors. If you want to learn from trusted sources, you might be worried that you’ll soon run out of your free articles for the month and then be stuck trusting a bunch of tweets.

We’ll argue about the importance of paying for news later. For now, let’s focus on the practical: where you can read major news outlets for free.

Click on the name of the news outlet to go directly to that publication’s free coverage.

The New York Times is offering its COVID-19 coverage for free.

The Washington Post has a free email newsletter for coronavirus-related news. All articles linked in the newsletter are free.

The Los Angeles Times coronavirus liveblog is available for free.

The Chicago Tribune is offering some coronavirus content for free, according to a Twitter thread by the paper.

The Wall Street Journal has created a free section for coronavirus articles.

The Atlantic is offering all coronavirus-related articles for free.

The Star is labeling free articles related to the coronavirus with a red “free digital access” label.

The Guardian has no paywall.

STAT, which covers health and medicine, is offering its coronavirus coverage for free.

Another solid bet: Check out your hometown newspaper. Many are lifting their paywalls for coronavirus articles or for the whole site in an effort to keep local communities informed.

If your hometown paper happens to be one of those that hasn’t lifted its paywall yet (looking at you, Chicago Tribune and Boston Globe), you may be able to skirt the rules by opening the link you want to read in an incognito window.
