After being closed since the beginning of the coronavirus lockdown, The Record-Courier is scheduled to open Monday.
Like many businesses, The R-C closed its doors to the public March 17, 2020, when Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced a statewide Risk Mitigation Initiative.
The Record-Courier Associate Publisher Tara Addeo said all staff of the publication was put on furlough with the exception of herself and Editor Kurt Hildebrand, who both worked remotely.
“Because a paper must go on, even during a pandemic,” said Addeo.
Now, with restrictions lifting The R-C is ready to re-open its doors to the community.
“It will be nice to have our doors open again to the public after being closed for 15 months,” said Addeo.
While remaining in The Record-Courier Center, after 25 years The R-C has moved into a new home in the former East Fork Gallery space.
“I’m very happy about the move, from such a large space to a more suitable and inviting space,” said Addeo.
Services at The R-C office will include newspaper purchases, back issues, historical information and assistance in answering general inquiries regarding subscriptions, classifieds and legal documentations.
The office will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and back to five days a week in the fall.
“The staff is really excited to open back up to the community,” said Addeo. “We’ve missed the day-to-day interactions with our readers.”
