As our community, state and nation face a difficult time, The Dominion Post will bring you the most up-to-date and accurate information available. We are following all that is happening with the COVID-19 — novel coronavirus — while still searching out the good news that is happening in our community.
At the same time, we are trying to keep our staff safe and healthy. Though media is considered an essential business, we are allowing as many of our staffers as possible to work from home. However, we have not closed our doors. At this time, phone calls are encouraged.
The Newsroom is open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday — 304-291-9425.
The Advertising Department is open from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday — 304-291-9449.
Circulation is open from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday — 304-291-9456.
The Business office is open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday — 304-284-0301.
Another way we hope to reduce risk is by having fewer people working on certain days. Beginning Monday, March 30, we will change our print publication from seven editions a week to five. We will not print newspapers on Mondays or Saturdays. This also reduces the risk for carriers who will be delivering fewer days.
That doesn’t mean we won’t continue to bring you the news seven days a week. We will have new stories posted to our website — dominionpost.com — daily. On that site, a digital version of The Dominion Post can be found under the “E-edition” tab. This, too, will be available seven days a week.
So, you can look for any coronavirus updates and other stories throughout the week. And right now, all coronavirus-related stories can be viewed free.
This will also allow for seven-day-a-week publication of classified and other ads.
Subscriptions for current print customers will be prorated to make up the difference for our new delivery schedule. Current subscribers will notice a 20% decrease on their next renewals. This will not affect our Sunday-only customers. All print subscribers have online access at no additional cost. If you have not activated your online account please do so by visiting dominionpost.com/activate.
There are several plans available online for new subscribers. Right now, you can pay $7 for a one-month online-only subscription and get two more months for free.
We also offer three free podcasts available to anyone. One is a weekly news Postcast with Chris Schulz interviewing our reporters about the big stories of the week. There’s also the Best of 7 with Sports Editor Sean Manning and reporter Andrew Spellman discussing the latest in athletics. Finally, Aull About History is a podcast we feature with the Morgantown Public Library’s Aull Center.
We also offer a newsletter you can sign up for at the bottom of our webpage. This is free and will bring the latest news to your inbox on a regular basis.
As the world changes around us, our goal is to keep up and keep you informed. We look forward to doing just that for years to come.
