ProPublica has put together a reporting team to investigate the response to the new coronavirus, which causes the disease known as COVID-19.

Are you a public health worker or front line medical provider? Do you work for or with a government agency involved in the effort to protect the public? Have you or your family personally been affected? Show us what we should be covering, or serve as an expert to make sure we’re on track.

Our first stories have examined key missteps in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s initial approach to testing for the virus, the effectiveness of popular hand sanitizers and more. Our reporters, including Caroline Chen, Marshall Allen, J. David McSwane and Lexi Churchill, are working to identify future stories. We need to hear from a variety of people in every part of the country. Please complete the form to share your expertise or experience with us.
