Positive stories emerge as families & communities deal with coronavirus


Dakota News Now is always looking to help tell the stories of our viewers and the things that affect your lives. Right now, nothing is impacting lives more than the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak.

We're asking for you to send us your stories of how you are dealing with the effects of the outbreak. And in a time of often troubling headlines, we're especially interested in positive stories.

Do you know of someone going out of their way to help those in need? Are you homeschooling your kids for the first time? Are you coming up with creative ways to beat cabin fever? Let us know!

Email us at news@dakotanewsnow.com, or message us on our Facebook page.

We've also set up a special viewer-submitted photo gallery where you can send us pictures or videos showing how you are dealing with the effects of the outbreak. You can submit yours here.
