Now is the time to use internet capabilities. The tiniest of invaders, the microscopic novel coronavirus, has made war upon our lives. It has driven us to social distancing, even to quarantine. However, more than ever we need to communicate with loved ones. Coronavirus is one virus you cannot catch over the Internet.
We also need to find out what the new rules are. As you may have noticed, we carry news about COVID-19 in a special spot: https://www.empireadvance.ca/covid-19
Or click the menu bar and select COVID-19 for related stories.
We post breaking news from official sources and stories from throughout Glacier Media’s news chain, including other Manitoba publications.
Our web page also carries stories that don’t make it to print.
Although a weekly print paper cannot keep readers up to date on the rapidly evolving health crisis, what we can and do give you are the personal touches from our communities; stories both local and unique.
The Virden Empire-Advance will keep you reading over the upcoming weeks. While some businesses are closing, we have arranged to continue to print and deliver the paper.
Our plan, to date, is to reduce office hours next week to allow some of our staff to be at home with family.
Until further notice, you can do business in our office between 9 a.m. and 12 noon. Phone us then as well, and email us any time.
