We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Your Guide to Get Outside Cover Story
I know that camping is safer than many activities, but I'm really sick of the "you can't get more socially distant than out in the forest!" It completely disregards the rural communities near these recreation areas. I live in a tiny town outside a national park and while everyone thinks they're doing great socially distancing by camping, they've actually brought COVID to our area and our employees. My town is an hour's drive each way to get to the nearest hospital, and we have a lot of older residents.

This is great, but people need to enjoy the outdoors responsibly. Please do a follow-up story about "Leave No Trace." People are trashing our wilderness!

There can be a lot of harm in going camping right now. You need to be sure you're not having to go into small towns and putting strain on systems or bringing a virus that you may have. If you're posting articles telling people to go camping, you need to tell them ways to do this safely."
