  • This illustration, created at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reveals ultrastructural morphology exhibited by coronaviruses. Note the spikes that adorn the outer surface of the virus, which impart the look of a corona surrounding the virion, when viewed electron microscopically. In this view, the protein particles E, S, and M, also located on the outer surface of the particle, have all been labeled as well. A novel coronavirus, named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019. The illness caused by this virus has been named coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). [image in public domain]

All in one place, you will be able to find cancellations and notices from local nonprofits, businesses, churches, the college, and the town – just click on the live links.

Davidson Community Foundation: Organizations serving people suffering from the economic effects of the COVID-19 virus may find desperately needed assistance from the newly-formed Davidson Community Foundation (DCF). The Foundation, which launched in mid-March and was established by local residents, aims to support and catalyze non-profit organizations directly serving the Davidson community in order to tackle large-scale projects and critical needs.
