To our readers, advertisers, sponsors and community members: I write this column to let you know that we here at the Melita New Era are recognizing the significant challenges that the current COVID-19 pandemic is creating for many of you.
In recent days, our prime minister made significant comments and announcements in regards to the federal government’s actions and recommendations. We will behave completely within those guidelines and requests.
Today I wish to share with you that all of us here at the Melita New Era are taking this issue very seriously. We remain 100 per cent committed to serving the needs of our community, especially at this unsettling time.
Our newsroom staff is fully engaged (by phone and email) with community news happenings, and particularly events and changes around the very fluid COVID-19 pandemic. We will keep you fully updated 24/7 on our website: www.melitanewera.ca.
We understand the need to have the most up-to-date information available, at all times, and you will get just that.
We will continue to print and deliver our newspaper, each week. The papers will carry up-to-date COVID-19 information as well as all the other community news that you expect.
However, for the most up-to-date information, please visit our website at www.melitanewera.ca.
We hope that all of you remain safe and healthy during this outbreak of COVID-19. Practise personal hygiene, maintain social distancing, and self-quarantine with the first sign of symptoms or if you have travelled outside of the province.
