In order for all area residents to have important local information on the coronavirus health emergency, Palo Alto Online is providing unlimited access to its website, effective immediately.
Until further notice, visitors to the website can follow the news without the normal seven-story limit per month for non-subscribers.
"At a time of heightened anxiety and a high demand for accurate and highly localized information, we want to make our reporting as widely available as possible," Embarcadero Media President Bill Johnson said.
"Our editorial staff is working overtime to follow and report on every aspect of this ongoing story. During such emergencies our policy is to suspend the pay meter as a public service," Johnson said.
The Palo Alto Weekly and its sister papers, the Mountain View Voice and the Almanac, have been working together and coordinating local coverage of their Midpeninsula cities since the outbreak of the coronavirus. Read the latest updates here.
