Journalists working in the Days of Coronavirus: Photo Stories, Part 3

Gayane Asryan


The state of emergency was extended, and the no-communication mode became a real pain for reporters. Some reporters have already moved to the regions in order to overcome the #stayhome restriction. The others have designed special schedules for balancing housework chores and work.

Most newsroom employees work remotely. Strict preventive measures are being conducted in functioning newsrooms.

Stay-at-home employees miss the newsrooms and their colleagues, and, especially, the on-location mode of event coverage. These days, they have started appreciating face-to-face talks, the process of addressing the problems on the spot and the detailed discussion of the topics with the editor and colleagues.

Reporters are also glad that, unlike other specialists, they have not lost their work rhythm, their story ideas and their contacts.

Media.am has asked reporters to provide photos showing their new working conditions.

Narine says, “You don’t know what exactly to disinfect – your chair, your earphones, or your mouse. You go to the studio, and then you come back home, and the same process starts again. Also, it is hard to work in a mask and without studio guests.”
