Stay Diligent, Sitka!

We’re getting to the finish line of this pandemic, thanks to the hard work of Alaskans, but now is not the time to let down our guard, Sitka.

While COVID-19 vaccines add another layer of protection, masking up in public, keeping 6 feet from others and avoiding gatherings remain critical tools to prevent the spread of COVID-19 – at least for now.

At this time, there is still considerable community transmission occurring in many Alaska communities. Some communities are seeing a decrease in cases while others are experiencing increases, such as the case in Sitka. Yesterday, our COVID-19 alert level increased from Low to Moderate.

Wash your hands frequently, wear a mask, keep at least 6 feet apart, keep your circles small—and vaccinate.
