To our readers,
In a few short weeks, our world has changed. Today, we are facing unprecedented challenges as the world fights COVID-19.
Trusted local news has never been more important. At the PDN and peninsuladailynews.com, our journalists are on the front lines, bringing you up-to-date information and breaking news.
To help the citizens of the North Olympic Peninsula in this time of crisis, we have lifted our “paywall” to give essential news to the greatest number of people. This allows full access to all stories online about the novel coronavirus and COVID-19, free of charge. If you are a subscriber, you have access not only to this information, but to all of our other content online as well.
We are also proud that our advertisers have chosen us as the way to connect with you about what they are doing during these unprecedented circumstances.
But, like many other local businesses, the COVID-19 pandemic is exerting financial pressures on the Peninsula Daily News we’ve never before experienced.
As a result, we’ve had to make some tough decisions, including temporarily reducing the hours our staff is working and reducing the number of sections we print throughout the week.
Every day you’ll still get news, sports, features, editorial columns, comics, crosswords, puzzles and plenty more.
Our priority in making these changes has been to preserve our ability to perform our public service mission and keep our community informed during these difficult days.
We hope that you value the critical role and support us in this important mission by becoming a subscriber today. To become a digital or home delivery print subscriber, visit peninsuladailynews.com/support.
If you are a current subscriber and would like to provide additional help, we offer an option to voluntarily increase your subscription level. If you value independent journalism, this is another opportunity to support us.
To stop the spread of COVID-19, our teams are working remotely so it may take more time than usual to reach us. We thank you for your patience.
Thank you for your support of Peninsula Daily News. We wish all the best to you in this difficult time.
Terry R. Ward
