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.
