Local COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information

Respected, Truthful, and Accurate Communication


As local news media, we will strive to keep all information accurate and up to date regarding both the Coronavirus/COVID-19, as well as all other news and information for our communities.

For current listings of postponements/cancellations visit this site which will be updated frequently as we get more information. The latest information will also be in Friday’s newspaper.

Please let us know of any additional announcements at news@heraldjournal.com, and especially when we get to the point of rescheduling events, let us help you keep the public informed.


To minimize risk to our staff and visitors, access in our offices will be limited to essential purposes only. We ask that you contact us by phone or email whenever possible

Main office/Winsted – 320-485-2535, news@heraldjournal.com or hj@heraldjournal.com

Our sales people will continue to make deliveries of ordered products as needed, however, they will focus on handling their sales efforts by phone and email as much as possible.


For local businesses and organizations that need to communicate with your customers or the public, we provide copywriting and graphic design services, and have several options to get your message out including digital, print/mail, signage, and of course, newspapers.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We’ll all get back to normal as soon as we can!
