ALEXANDRIA, VA – As a result of recent developments with the COVID-19 pandemic, including state and nationwide bans on gatherings, The Zebra Press is temporarily suspending our weekly email Z-Weekender, which offers all the upcoming weekend’s hottest tickets and events in Alexandria. We are also suspending Kevin Dauray’s weekly “Let Loose in Alexandria” column.

In its place, we will be producing two Z-Newsletters a week to keep you up-to-date on all the latest uplifting stories in Alexandria.

Publishing on Mondays and Thursdays, the The Z-Newsletters are free email subscriptions containing timely articles and important messages from area businesses and organizations.

If you are not already a subscriber, you can sign up here or go directly to for various options.

Print and digital editions of The Zebra Press will publish on schedule, as always, on the first Monday of every month.  Home deliveries will stay the same, but most business delivery will be restricted to our newspaper boxes and major points of distribution, like grocery and rug stores. If you want home delivery or to sign up for a digital copy, visit for either option.

At this time, everyone’s safety is of the utmost importance. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

Our editorial doors are open to you if you need us during these challenging days. If we can help share news of something, please send a note to [email protected] or find our page on Facebook and message us there.

Thank you for your continued support of The Zebra Press — Good News in Alexandria. Stay calm. Stay positive. Stay informed.
