For several days, The Walton Tribune has been bringing you up-to-the-minute stories on how the COVID-19 outbreak is affecting Walton County.

We've been the first news source to report school closings. We were there with department heads as Walton County officials worked out a game plan Friday. We told you how to take part in worship services as numerous churches suspended in-person services this week.

And through whatever comes in the next few weeks, we'll be there for you with the latest local news to help you stay up to date.

Stories are posted regularly on our newly updated website, The site was enhanced for mobile reading just last month, and it's receiving rave reviews.

We also post stories and quick news hits on our Facebook page, where more than 20,000 people are part of our online community.

Unfortunately, the Facebook algorithms make it hard to find any one article unless you tell the site it's important to you. You can do that by directing Facebook to show you the latest posts from The Tribune first.

On the horizontal bar under the collage at the top of our page — — click "Following," and make sure to select "See First."

That way, you'll be sure to stay in the loop.
