These Times call for remote working

A message to our readers (Updated, 3:30 pm, Weds., March 18)

In a commitment to the health and safety of our employees and customers, and following the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control on mitigating the spread of COVID-19, The Martha’s Vineyard Times began working remotely Monday. 

This new workflow will look seamless to most readers, because we already do a lot of work remotely; technology allows us to file stories and update our website from fire scenes and meetings, and share editing, design, and production duties all while at our home desks. (See our various home offices here:

We remain committed to bringing you up-to-date information on our website, in our daily newsletter The Minute, and in our weekly print edition. 

As of Thursday, March 18, our office on Beach Road in Vineyard Haven will be closed to the public. You can still reach our reporters, advertising representatives, editors, and other employees by dialing 508-693-6100 and their extensions. (Remember, when dialing an extension, putting the # first is important.) Calls will be forwarded to them.

You can also reach out by email. See a complete list of company contacts at

Thank you for continuing to make us an essential community resource. Martha’s Vineyard, we’ll get through this together.
