Chronicle Keeps Working, Temporarily Closes Office Amid COVID-19 Outbreak


In an effort to protect our staff and our readers, advertisers, sources and neighbors, The Chronicle has made the decision to have staff work remotely for the next several weeks, starting Tuesday, March 17.

All staff will still be working and available through email and phone numbers listed in The Chronicle and on The newspaper will be delivered as usual. 

“We’ve made the only responsible decision to help slow the spread of a potentially deadly illness that has already reached our community,” Editor Natalie Johnson said. 

To reach the newsroom, email or call 360-736-4796. To reach our front office, call 360-736-3311.
