Reestablished COVID-19 Mitigation Strategies go into effect Feb. 9

February 4, 2022 – News

The City and Borough of Juneau Assembly last month passed an ordinance reestablishing the City and Borough of Juneau COVID-19 Mitigation Strategies. The reestablished strategies go into effect Wednesday, February 9, and expire April 30, unless terminated earlier. Read the ordinance and the strategies here.

COVID-19 continues to spread quickly in Juneau, impacting families, businesses, and the medical system. The COVID-19 mitigation strategies are a set of guidelines on masking, large gatherings, restaurants/bars, personal services, gyms, and travel that are tied to the city’s current risk level. Under the ordinance, Juneau’s risk level can be classified as Fully Open, Minimal, Moderate, Modified High, or High.

The biggest change between the current mitigation strategies and the ones that will be in place February 9 is the indoor gatherings limit. At Moderate and above, indoor gatherings are currently limited to 50 or fewer people. As of February 9, Moderate and above community risk levels limit indoor gatherings to 50 percent indoor capacity or 50 people, whichever is greater.
