April 27, 2020 – CV19-News, News

The Juneau Assembly will meet with Alaska Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anne Zink during a Special Assembly Meeting at 6 p.m. tonight. Here’s the agenda packet.

Afterward, the Assembly will have a Regular Meeting at 7 p.m. Included in the agenda is a public hearing on Resolution 2891 – A Resolution Instituting Measures to Protect Public Health Related to COVID-19: “State of Alaska Health Mandate 16 allows local governments the ability to choose different rules to allow for more precise control of COVID-19. Health Mandate 16 went into effect on April 24. It allowed certain sectors of the economy to gradually open, including increasing gathering limits from 10 to 20 people. This resolution would keep the gathering limit to 10 to provide time to evaluate the consequences of the other measures in Health Mandate 16.” Read the rest of the agenda packet here.
