From STAFF REPORTS
In an effort to protect its community and employees, the Herald &Tribune office will be closed to walk-in customers until further notice. The newspaper is taking this action in order to prevent the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).
“We intend to continue serving our community by providing the most up-to-date news and information we possibly can, but to do so, we must take the same social distancing steps nearly every other business and institution have put into place,” Herald & Tribune Publisher Lisa Whaley said Tuesday. “We cherish our home, our region, and our readers, and just like our readers at home or in the office, we are doing everything we can to protect each other.”
Even though the office is closed, the Herald & Tribune will still be publishing a newspaper every Wednesday. Staff will also be available to serve our readers, customers and community during this time. Assistance will be just a call or an email away.
“We have many blessings in life, blessings that become more evident every day,” Whaley said. “One of those blessings is a telecommunications system that allows us to continue to work and serve our customers remotely. We are always just a phone call or email away. And we will work hard to make sure you continue to get your Herald & Tribune news.”
