We know you are missing the weekly Edmonds Beacon, and we miss bringing it to you. As we have noted before, the Beacon is temporarily publishing its paper edition on the first and third Thursdays of the month due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But we want to remind you that everyone at the Beacon continues to work every day as an essential business, as per Gov. Jay Inslee’s orders.

What does this mean for readers?

So while the Beacon newspaper is twice a month for now, we continue to provide fresh news daily on our website, edmondsbeacon.com, and through our social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

And the Beacon is making its coronavirus stories free to all online readers at http://www.edmondsbeacon.com. (Subscriptions are $2.95 for unlimited access.)

We’ve revamped our homepage, so each week you’ll see stories that are new.

In the weeks since the April 16 issue, we’ve featured new stories on Earth Day, a crash at Five Corners, information on a new City-sponsored contest, as well as an exclusive account on how the pandemic has taken a devastating toll of an assisted living home.

And much more.

Plus, we were excited to introduce a new feature called “Class of 2020: Senior Focus,” where we spotlighted Edmonds-Woodway students impacted by the pandemic. Their stories are also in this week’s Beacon.

And we continue to post daily, hyperlocal information from the Snohomish Health District on coronavirus numbers related to Edmonds.

There’s a lot going on at the Beacon, and we’re here 24/7 to provide news that affects your life, in print and online.
