Shrewsbury Now – Latest News – and Our Response to COVID-19

As everyone’s thoughts are focussed on the COVID-19 situation, we wanted to share how the Shrewsbury Now team are responding. The safety and health of our community, including our loyal customers and dedicated deliverers, is always most important to us.

In an effort to protect our community, we have decided to temporarily cease the production and delivery of the paper.

Our main concern is for the community, and for the people who deliver our paper. Their safety comes before anything else, and we feel it would be irresponsible to continue while we face a significant threat from this virus. We feel our decision is a sensible thing to do in the circumstances.

At the moment it is unknown how long the virus can remain active on newspapers (one TV news programme said it could be 24 hours) but it is known that it can survive for 12 hours on soft fabric (clothing) and 5 hours on hard surfaces (letterboxes and door handles).

Previous recent editions of Shrewsbury Now with advertisements from local business can be found here: E-versions

As the situation constantly changes we will evaluate our plans and listen to the views of our advertisers before making a future decision. Because the situation is complex and evolving rapidly, our plans will change. If they do, we’ll let you know via our website. While you’ll probably miss seeing Shrewsbury Now for a short while, our website is always open for viewing.

Please reach out to us on our social channels and share your thoughts – we’re here for you. Follow us on Facebook too. We know Shrewsbury’s community will look out for one another – and we will ‘see you’ soon. Thank you for your support and understanding.

The Shrewsbury Now Team – Jan, Mandy and Karen.
