Panorama’s Response to COVID-19

Panorama Team


Panorama is based in Seattle, the initial epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. While the organization has worked on outbreak preparedness and response for years, it is still a shock to be living in the middle of a fast-moving global pandemic.

During this unusual time, it is a small comfort that Panorama can play a role in the COVID-19 response. Drawing on our CEO Gabrielle Fitzgerald’s extensive experience in outbreak preparedness, Panorama has been working on various aspects of the COVID-19 response since January.

Panorama’s work has included driving initiatives on a tech platform for the COVID-19 response, creating a Pandemic Action Network and starting a global behavior change communications campaign. Panorama has worked closely with the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, along with other philanthropic and private sector partners, on the response.

Here at home, our team has been working remotely since early March, and compiled these tips on how to work from home and stay happy and healthy during this time. We are also committed to helping those who are dealing directly with the effects of the pandemic, and are pleased to support Angeline’s Day Center for Women, where our team regularly serves lunch. Given our belief in collaborative philanthropy, we have also made gifts to three COVID-19-related funds that are supporting the response on the local, national and global levels: Seattle Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund, the CDC Relief Fund, and the COVID Solidarity Response Fund.

As the pandemic evolves, we are continuing to create and share resources with others.
