If you are a student journalist wondering what you can do these days, considering tracking the statements and actions of _local_ officials in the area where you live/attend school.

Track them in a spreadsheet like a timeline.
Statements: tweets, FB posts, press releases, basically anything.

Actions: Closures, curfews, quarantines, supply mgmt, personnel acts, spending.
Want to do more? Track the actions of your fellow students and student organizations. Assemble as much data as you can on group behavior. It will yield stories and, more important, understanding.
