For the past 15 years, Oregon Coast TODAY has enthusiastically encouraged locals and visitors alike to do one thing above all else — get out of the house and connect with coastal culture.
That’s a difficult mission to square with current advice from federal and state government to essentially steer clear of people wherever possible.
The governor’s order restricting restaurants and bars to take-out orders only, plus the strong advice to other businesses and attractions to close their doors, will put an enormous strain on our service-focused economy.
To try and lessen that strain, we at Oregon Coast TODAY are waiving advertising costs for all our bar, restaurant and event-venue advertisers for the four-week duration of the governor’s order. We hope that you will continue to try and support these businesses in any way you can, whether that means ordering food or drinks to go; or buying gift certificates to redeem when things finally get back to normal.
Some of our advertisers, such as grocery stories and healthcare providers, will be on the front lines of this crisis. As you engage with these folks, please be mindful of the strain they are under. Be patient, be respectful and, above all, be kind.
