Continuing In Uncertain Times: An Important Notice From North Forty News

Dear Friends and Supporters of North Forty News and New SCENE Magazine,

In response to Covid-19, North Forty News is implementing an emergency action plan to continue coverage and operations during these uncertain times.

Primarily, we plan to help ensure the well being of our community as well as our staff by limiting our exposure to public places while increasing delivery of the number of our publications to Northern Colorado.

Our first step will be to change the delivery program of our print editions.

Our next step will be to expand coverage in the safest and widest-reaching ways possible.

Starting immediately, and until further notice, North Forty News is changing its delivery policy.

Subscribers who live in Northern Colorado can opt-in for driveway delivery.

– This is only available to new, current and renewing subscribers who live within reasonable distance to state highways and urban areas in Northern Colorado. In order to limit our exposure to the virus, our staff will deliver your copy to a driveway or mailbox area only — no P. O. Boxes.
– All delivery addresses are subject to approval by the publisher.
– Subscribers who do not opt-in will automatically be mailed their copy, as is our current policy.

Our delivery locations to the public of our free editions have changed.

– We are changing delivery to a limited number of locations (many are available 24/7).
– Locations will change as we assess popularity and risk. Please see our virtual map of locations at any time to get your hard copy of North Forty News and/or New SCENE if you are not a current subscriber.

We have begun extensive (and urgent) partnerships with other local media, funders, advertisers, and community organizations to combine our efforts in order to keep Northern Colorado informed through these unprecedented times.

Our community needs to come together, while all recommendations are that we must limit personal contact with each other. North Forty News is committed to using every effort to communicate safely during this time and in as many places as possible.

Thank you to you – our reader – and for letting our advertisers know that you support North Forty News.
