THE Olive Press will be distributing as normally as we can this week.

Our five regional newspapers are going to print as they always do – never a day late in 14 years – and we will service as large an area as our team of loyal and  hard-working distributors are able to.

Brimming with the latest news on the coronavirus spread, we will also have plenty of features on what to do while stuck at home for two weeks and some ideas on how to avoid it.

Despite many usual drops being forcibly shut due to the spread of the virus, we will be doubling and tripling numbers at the other key drops that remain open.

This includes dozens of supermarkets, petrol stations and many other businesses that are able to stay open during the massive and growing crisis.

It also includes hire car businesses, hotels and some newspaper kiosks, as well as various other local businesses.
