AP Week in Pictures, North America

May 15–May 21, 2020

This photo gallery highlights some of the most compelling images made or published by Associated Press photographers in the North America region.

This week’s selection includes a man wearing a rubber diving head covering along with goggles and a special air filtration mask to protect himself from the spread of the coronavirus as he sits in a designated circle marked on the grass at Brooklyn’s Domino Park in New York; President Donald Trump looking through a face shield while touring Ford Motor Co.’s Rawsonville Components Plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan; protesters demonstrating during a rally against Pennsylvania’s coronavirus stay-at-home order at the state Capitol in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; and healthcare workers at New Orleans East Hospital waving handkerchiefs and dancing to a jazz serenade, as a tribute for their care of COVID-19 patients by the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, outside the hospital in New Orleans.

The gallery was curated by photo editor Courtney Dittmar in New York.
