The Hays Free Press has been here since 1903, covering news that is important to the readers of Hays County. We've covered pandemics before (consider the Spanish Flu of 1918), and again we are putting our efforts into making sure our residents know the importance of staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our reporters and editor are on the streets and on the phones to bring you the latest. In addition, we need our loyal readers to understand that, like a lot of businesses, we have been hit hard by this economic crisis, as local businesses are the source of most of our revenue in the form of advertising. But we will continue, no matter what, to gather local information about this pandemic; we will get the stories, the statistics, the news that you need to know.

Your continued support is so appreciated. Local journalism is needed now more than ever.
