The City and Borough of Sitka is closely monitoring the Novel Corona Virus 2019 or COVID-19. Though most of us feel fine, it is of the utmost importance that we emphasize prevention and community mitigation in order to prevent and slow the spread of the virus in our community. 

It is important that the City continue to provide the essential services to the community with healthy employees. The Centers for Disease Control has advised that social distancing is extremely important, however we want to make sure that the public is staying engaged with the business of our elected officials.
