    The Weekly is not the only newspaper to face staff reductions amid the economic drop-off due to coronavirus.

    The Stranger in Seattle announced 18 layoffs on March 13, and suspended production of their print newspaper, moving to online-only.

    The next day, the Portland Mercury announced 10 staff members had been laid off and they were also suspending the print newspaper.

    The Sacramento News & Review and the Chico News & Review have both suspended publication for now, with a notification online that reads, "We have lost over 50 percent of our advertising revenue in less than one week."
