Valued Verizon Media Partner,

These are unprecedented times that require us to change our daily lives and navigate a new normal. The uncertainty can be unsettling, but I have complete confidence that we will get through this together and emerge stronger.

Today I am reaching out to let you know that while our top priority is the health and safety of our employees and community, our partnership with you remains paramount. At Verizon Media, we have taken the necessary steps to ensure business continuity. Our teams are equipped with the necessary tools and resources to service your business without interruption, and to help you navigate through these times to the greatest extent of our capabilities.

Verizon Media is at the center of the digital ecosystem. We know how critical the online services and technology we provide are in supporting your business during unique times like these. As the situation evolves, we’ll be investing in our capabilities, technology and support, and responding in real-time as well as planning ahead, to ensure we’re delivering for you.

Lastly, we want you to know that we are doubling down on our focus to support our communities and impact society for the better: We have created a coronavirus hub page across the Yahoo ecosystem (News, Finance, Sports, Lifestyle & Entertainment) that aggregates the latest news about the pandemic in the U.S. and across the globe to keep our nearly 900M users informed with trusted content. We are also donating advertising space across Verizon Media’s properties to organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) to help amplify their message. These are part of a broader effort by Verizon that also includes:

  • Waiving late fees for those impacted by COVID-19
  • Donating $10M to nonprofits directed at supporting students and first responder healthcare workers
  • Tripling data allowance for our Verizon Innovative Learning schools

In times of uncertainty, we gravitate towards the familiar to find comfort, support and guidance. Our partnership with you is rooted in trust and we will continue to help you succeed in this new environment. Whatever our new normal may be, we will find a path forward together.

Be well and stay safe.
