A token of our love: A memorial for those lost to covid-19

Coronavirus is claiming thousands of lives. We want to offer a space for readers to remember those they’ve lost.

Please Note

The Washington Post is providing this important information about the coronavirus for free. For more free coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, sign up for our daily Coronavirus Updates newsletter where all stories are free to read.


More than 50,000 Americans have died of covid-19 since the outbreak began. The Washington Post is setting up a space where readers can leave an item in their memory. We hope that this can be a place where readers can both grieve and celebrate their friends and family members.

We acknowledge that not everyone was able to receive a confirmed covid-19 test before they died. You can still include them here.
