Los Angeles Times president Chris Argentieri and executive editor Norman Pearlstine made the following announcement to subscribers:

Dear Reader,

The Los Angeles Times continues to operate as an essential business during the stay-at-home order.

We are taking additional precautions to support the health and safety of our workforce, and that of the community, while we maintain your home-delivery service. In particular, we are adjusting the work schedules at our printing and distribution facilities. As a result, we have made temporary changes to the print sections:

Monday-Friday: Main News and Business sections combined; California and Sports combined; and Calendar.

Saturdays: Main News and Business combined; California; Sports; and the Saturday section with our lifestyle coverage.

Sundays: Main News and Business; California and Sports; Food; and Calendar and Arts & Books combined.

Through our coverage, we’ve brought you voices from around the world and reported the news as it breaks to put this pandemic into context for the communities we serve.

As a print subscriber, you are entitled to unlimited access to our website and mobile app. If you haven’t already activated your digital access, we encourage you to do so to ensure that you’ll have
uninterrupted and complete access to all of our coverage: latimes.com/activate.

We are proud of the work being done by the Los Angeles Times’ talented, dedicated and indefatigable staff – from the pressroom to the newsroom. People throughout our organization are working under challenging conditions to deliver this vital news, 24 hours a day.

With so many businesses in the region and around the world dealing with this crisis, most of our advertisers are unable to continue advertising, which makes your subscription and support of our journalism more important than ever.

Thank you.

Chris Argentieri
President & COO
