An article in the Guardian says that after a conference call took place today to discuss the impact of coronavirus on English cricket, another such call will take place on Thursday. The article suggests that - not particularly surprisingly - the cricket which ECB are most keen to preserve to as great an extent as possible are England’s internationals and The Hundred in order to avoid upsetting Sky and BBC, while the competition which the counties are most keen to preserve to as great an extent as possible is the T20 Blast. If the aforementioned matches can take place, then I am confident that the County Championship will also be played in some form, although I don’t think anyone feels certain that the Royal London Cup will take place or that the Championship will start as scheduled on 12th April.

The possibility of the whole season being cancelled has not been ruled out, although it would be a big surprise if such a decision gets made for at least a couple of months.
