Alaska governor orders statewide restrictions on restaurants

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy is ordering all restaurants, bars, breweries and other places that serve food be closed for dine-in service from 5 p.m. Wednesday until late afternoon on April 1 to help control the spread of the new coronavirus. Dunleavy’s order came nearly 36 hours after Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz first instituted similar precautions in the state’s largest city. Businesses can still offer drive-up or drive-thru services along with delivering food. Dunleavy also ordered all entertainment facilities be closed to the public for the remainder of March. This includes the closure of theaters, gyms, bowling alleys and bingo halls.
