Weekly Update - March 21, 2020: COVID-19 news and updates

On this first weekend of Spring, I feel like we should be celebrating new growth and renewal. But instead I - and I imagine many of you - am hunkered down at home, practicing social distancing, and doing my best to not get infected. Of course it’s affecting tech companies as well. Most have sent their workforce home, putting a crimp in both product development and support. 

But there are a few bright spots. Many companies are offering their paid services for free, at least for the next few months. And many artists and performers are continuing to work to keep us entertained.

I’ve rounded up the latest information below. One thing that is abundantly clear: tech companies need people to keep them running smoothly. And we need each other.
