A letter from the editor on coronavirus
Last updated 3/18/2020 at 5:39pm
In this uncertain time, as we face the COVID-19 pandemic as a nation and as a community, we at Enterprise Newspapers are determined to keep you up to date with the latest information on the outbreak.
However, as our drop locations for our paper close due to the shut downs ordered by Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, the Bugle, Enterprise and Sentinel newspapers are finding it increasingly more difficult to dispense our print product the way we normally do.
While we will still offer our product, we will do so is much fewer locations, as libraries, schools and restaurants are closed to the public.
Our papers will still be available in the city or village hall and some other select areas such as police stations and train depots.
You may also notice a chance in the format of the product – either a paper with less pages than usual or one that has combined news from all the counties in our coverage area.
This will continue for the foreseeable future and we hope to get back to normal as soon as possible.
While we strive to continue to bring you news on COVID-19 as well as the uplifting feature stories we have tried to make a staple of our coverage, the cancellations of events and gatherings will make it more challenging until our communities return to normal.
I hope all of our readers and your loved ones come out on the other side of this unprecedented time in our lives healthy and have good stories to tell.
In fact, all through your time in quarantine, please send me your stories at the email listed above on how someone in your community made living through this time a little easier. If a stranger shopped for you, a neighbor watched your children, or your employer helped you out with paid time off – we want to hear about it.
Even though we cannot be around each other during this time, it doesn’t mean we can’t look out for each other.
Thank you all and keep reading,
