The office of the Antigo Daily Journal will be closed to the public effective at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

This temporary closure is due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in the area.

Residents who need to contact the newspaper can still do so by mail and email, and by dropping items off through the drop box near the front door.

The Antigo Daily Journal office is located at 612 Superior St.

The Langlade County Health Department is reporting 429 positive COVID cases as of 8 a.m. Monday. There are 183 active cases and 244 recovered cases.
