Anchorage adds more restrictions on out-of-state travelers

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Anchorage Daily News) — Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz has signed an emergency order on Friday implementing more stringent coronavirus-related restrictions on out-of-state travelers compared to state regulations. The Anchorage Daily News reports that travelers from outside Alaska are now able to avoid a statewide mandatory 14-day quarantine if they test negative for COVID-19 but the city of Anchorage has imposed additional regulations that limit some visitors’ interactions with residents. Regulations include not being allowed to dine in at restaurants or visit indoor facilities such as theaters. It is unclear how the new policy might be enforced.
