Suspension to Courier Weekend amid COVID-19 pandemic

Advocate Media Inc. will suspend publishing of the Courier Weekend and combine its efforts with The Saint Croix Courier for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. This will allow us to provide a better focused news stream, which will be supplemented with our digital property:

On Monday, March 16, paywalls were disabled on for 30 days to allow the community free access to COVID-19 updates, as well as any other online news stories. Users are prompted to sign in as a member using a free account.

All existing subscribers of the Weekend Courier will receive the The Saint Croix Courier in lieu of the weekend edition. The circulation department is working on a plan for those subscribers who receive both editions of the paper.

None of our employees will be directly affected by this change.
