Coronavirus update

Newspaper Club office

To our Newspaper Club customers and community:

We appreciate that this is a very worrying time and the situation can change rapidly. We will post status updates here if anything changes.

6 April (updated 15 May)

  • We are printing on a reduced schedule so orders may take a little longer than usual.
  • UK deliveries are currently going out on schedule. Overseas deliveries may be subject to delays depending on the local situation.
  • The delivery companies we work with are currently operating with a "no contact" service and deliveries will not require signatures.
  • Our customer service team is working remotely and happy to help.

We have taken steps to make sure that our staff are safe and well, and that our team is more resilient in case of illness. Our plan is to keep printing and delivering newspapers for as long as possible.

What is the risk of coronavirus transmission through paper or packaging? As of this writing (25 March 2020), the World Health Organization (WHO) states that getting coronavirus through goods is low risk:

"The likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low."

If you have any questions or concerns please write to us at

Thanks for all the friendly, supportive messages so far. 

—The Newspaper Club team
