The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire)
In rapidly changing times, you can depend on The Press and Journal
This time last week the country was on the verge of going into lockdown as the battle to stop the spread of coronavirus was stepped up.
Over the weekend, the UK Government signalled it will not hesitate to take even tougher measures to keep people safe as the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the UK – and, tragically, the number of deaths associated with it – continue to rise.
The way we go about our daily lives has changed so fundamentally in such a short space of time it has taken many of us by surprise, and we now have to accept we are facing a very long haul back to normality.
Amid the unprecedented crisis facing the country, The Press and Journal remains committed to not only bringing you the very latest updates on the efforts to tackle the pandemic across our circulation area, Scotland, the rest of the UK and the world, but also being part of the north and north-east region’s response to the immense challenges it presents.
Our reporting and production teams are pulling out all the stops to continue delivering your most trusted source of news six days a week, and our digital journalists are constantly updating our website to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.
Your can still buy your P&J at shops, supermarkets and newsagents, or have it delivered to your door.
But we appreciate neither of these options is practical for everyone at a time when people are trying so hard to stick to the rules on social distancing and self-isolation, and staying at home to keep themselves and families safe.
That is why we are offering three months’ free subscription to our Web and E-paper pack, which gives unlimited access to our website, app and a digital copy of The Press and Journal.
You can find details of how to access this offer, and arrange home delivery if you prefer, at the bottom of this page.
You may already be aware of some changes in the number of pages and the content on them as the their situation changes and the steps we are all being asked to take to delay the spread of the virus are ramped up.
We will, however, endeavour to continue bringing you our usual mix of local, Scottish, national and world news, and are conscious that other things continue to happen which our readers want and need to know about.
And clearly, as you would expect, we will deliver the most in-depth coverage possible of all issues related to Covid-19 and how they affect our communities.
We are aware there is a great deal of information around the coronavirus outbreak available free on social media – but also conscious that much of it is unreliable, and in some cases very misleading and completely inaccurate.
The Press and Journal has been at the heart of the community and a trusted source of news for more than 270 years, and in these most troubled of times our teams will work tirelessly to provide you with a newspaper you can depend on.
