The Indiana Gazette

The Indiana Gazette

While The Indiana Gazette remains dedicated to bringing you the news and information important to your lives, we are doing our part to comply with state and national guidelines aimed at stopping the spread of the coronavirus.

The staff continues to work diligently in the facility at 899 Water St., but beginning Thursday, the office will be closed to walk-in customers until further notice out of an abundance of caution.

Customers are asked to deposit any subscription and advertising payments, or press releases and letters to the editor, and any other correspondence into the lock box provided in the entryway to the building.

Rest assured, newspaper publication and delivery will continue as usual to homes, businesses and various other locations throughout the area, including our vendor racks.

We are available to take your phone calls at (724) 465-5555 during normal business hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Additionally, we can be reached at the following email addresses:

• News and other editorial content: news@indianagazette.net

• Advertising: sales@indianagazette.net

As we move forward chronicling the pandemic as it unfolds, we will continue providing vital, in-depth coverage to keep you informed both in print and online at www.indianagazette.com. We also want to hear from you about any issues affecting your lives because of the new guidance from health officials and the government. How has your work situation or your business been impacted? If you have children at home because of school closures, how are you coping? Please let us know about stories of concern that you feel deserve to be covered.

While it may appear that much of life has been put on hold, an abundance of stories remain to be told by our staff.

Newspapers are considered an essential business, according to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, and as such, we continue to gather and publish news for the benefit of the public. Our reporters, photographers and editors strive to seek out information as it affects our community — only now we will be doing so by limiting our interaction with the people we cover. For the foreseeable future, we will conduct most of our interviews by phone, and keep a distance if the need arises to ask questions face to face. When possible, we ask that you submit photographs of your events so our photographers can remain out of the public as much as possible.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and cooperation during this difficult situation. We all face great uncertainty about the coming days and weeks, but as a unified community, we will get through these troubled times together.
