How should a brand approach marketing during this pandemic?  It's important to lean into trusted content and take a more nuanced approach to brand safety to ensure you are not blocking news.  Below please find a variety of resources and perspectives to help.

“I will say this again. Please, don’t block or harm news sites during this time under the pretext of brand safety. The Coronavirus topic is unavoidable, news impressions are increasing, and responsible brands should be there in respectful and meaningful ways.”
