Dear Readers: The coronavirus has greatly impacted every facet of our lives and every part of the communities in which we live. Churches, schools and most businesses have closed. Events are canceled or postponed. Parents are at home with their children assisting with distance learning. Some have lost their jobs while others fear losing them. Everyone has concerns and questions on what the days and weeks ahead will bring.
At the moment one thing is for certain. As an essential business of the Connecticut news media, Prime Publishers, Inc. will continue to publish its Voices and Town Times newspapers so that our readers will receive the latest news in print and online without interruption.
In order to continue serving you, we must make critical changes in how we do business. Effective immediately, our offices at 55 Heritage Rd., Southbury and 449 Main St., Watertown are closed to the public; only open to necessary company staff.
Our reporters are working from home; non-essential staff have been asked not to come in; the rest are following CDC guidelines for social distancing, hand washing and disinfecting.
