    Citing the need to remain closely connected to federal and local partners while monitoring the “rapidly-evolving information in regard to the coronavirus,” Gov. Mike Dunleavy cancelled town hall meetings, March 9-11, in Kenai, Seward and Homer.

    “We plan to continue these important conversations with local governments, school districts, businesses, tribes, and non-profits around Alaska by telephonic means, as well as Facebook town halls, until such time as we can resume travel to communities,” Gov. Dunleavy said. “My administration has been closely monitoring the novel coronavirus outbreak since mid-January and are well-prepared with strong protocols should we see any cases come to Alaska. The health, safety, and welfare of Alaskans remains my number one priority. We’re going to work together as Alaskans – we pull together during times like this.”
