The Kingsville Record office as of March 24, 2020 will be closed to the general public for the foreseeable future in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, Publisher Tim Acosta announced on Tuesday. 

The decision mirrors those made by other news organizations around the state. Staff will continue working at the newspaper’s offices at 1831 W. Santa Gertrudis, but members of the public will not be allowed access.

“The decision on Tuesday will not affect our newspaper’s coverage of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis that has caused concern for our community and its residents,” Acosta said. “Our reporters will continue to provide information as it is received from our local elected officials and cover different aspects of the story as they arise for our readers.”
