Always, but especially in times like these, it takes the presence of friends to give us perspective. This is a time of real challenges for many of us, but the challenge that all of us face is fear. And fear is always easier to face with friends—even if those friends have to stay safely on the other side of a computer screen.

At Verily, we want to be that voice of a friend in this challenging time. That’s why this week, we’re launching a daily newsletter, Keeping Calm During COVID-19. Our goal is to filter the news for you so that you can have the updates you need for your personal response and preparedness. We’ll also provide a little levity, through the best memes, tweets, or other responses we’re seeing. And, lastly, we’ll be diving into our archived content to share pieces that might be helpful to you as you navigate the rhythms of our new daily lives, from effective tips for remote work to ways to mitigate cabin fever.

You can sign up for this daily email here—we’ll be continuing it for an indefinite period of time.
