On July 30, 2021 the City and Borough of Sitka Assembly approved ordinance 2021-24 requiring use of a face covering in certain indoor settings and providing a penalty.
The following is required: All individuals must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when they are indoors in public settings or communal spaces outside the home.
The ordinance shall remain in effect until the risk level as defined by the Sitka Emergency operations Center is moderate during times before August 24, 2021, or at midnight on August 24, 2021, whichever occurs first. If the risk level is still high it will be on the Assembly agenda for possible renewal on August 24, 2021.
