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 protective mask while waiting for a bus in Detroit; President Donald Trump arriving to speak about the coronavirus in the James Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington; a boy raising a palm to the sky during the worship portion of a Palm Sunday parking lot service in Beckley, West Virginia; and the supermoon rising over a neon ice cream cone on a Braum’s sign in Owasso, Oklahoma.

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