A PDF version of this timeline appeared in the COVID-19 edition of Legend magazine.

San Diego City College has directly been affected by the spread of coronavirus, causing the shutdown of campus on March 16 through the fall 2020 semester.

But the origins of COVID-19 go much further back to Dec. 31, 2019 in Wuhan, China.

The staff of City Times has compiled a list of events that occurred throughout the spread of the pandemic, ranging from global to local news stories. Each piece was then added to an interactive timeline using TimelineJS by Knightlab.
