Dear friends and readers,

All of us at Oyster Pointer are hoping that you, your family and friends are doing well, feeling healthy and being safe during this unprecedented time of global pandemic.

In response to growing health concerns and business closures, quarantine measures and school cancellations, Oyster Pointer reduced its April distribution to ensure the most effective marketing options and results for our advertisers and the safety of our readers. Issues are being distributed to all open and available distribution locations. Others will be direct mailed via the U.S. Postal Service. Each issue is available in a digital file on our website, oysterpointer.net. This ensures that our advertisers continue to reach their targeted market even during this shutdown period.

Thinking of the future uncertainty under present conditions, we have decided that in the best interest of our partners in marketing to combine the May and June 2020 issues into a single issue, again distributing where possible, using direct mail and our website. As always, we are happy to receive any comments you may have.

My sincere appreciation in working together. Wishing you and your loved ones good health and continuing safety.
