On March 20, 2020 Mayor Berkowitz issued the Proclamation of Emergency “Hunker Down” Order ordering everyone within the Municipality of Anchorage to stay home as much as possible.
On March 20, 2020 Governor Dunleavy issued a COVID–19 Health Mandate closing all public and private schools through May 1, 2020.
On March 16, 2020 Mayor Berkowitz signed an emergency declaration signed Emergency Order EO–01, which regulates bars, breweries and restaurants in order to preserve public safety and welfare. Starting at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, March 16, dine–in service for food or drink at bars, breweries and restaurants will be prohibited until 11:59 p.m. on March 31. All buffets and salad bars will be closed to self-service. Drive–thru, take-out, and delivery services are allowed. This restriction does not apply to grocery stores. In addition to these restrictions, all entertainment facilities including theaters, gyms, and bingo halls will be closed starting at 5:00 p.m., Monday, March 16 until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31
Following yesterday’s announcement of the emergency declaration in response to COVID-19, today Mayor Ethan Berkowitz directed that all civic, cultural, and recreational facilities where large crowds can gather be closed for public events until March 31 in order to protect and preserve public health and safety.
From Mayor Berkowitz: “Anchorage prides itself on being welcoming through the many ways in which we gather with neighbors, friends, and others to enjoy culture, entertainment, and recreation. But right now, our top priority is to flatten the curve – to slow the spread of COVID-19 – so that our healthcare facilities can continue to treat every patient. If we all act together, each one of us can make Anchorage as safe as possible.”
While we have one confirmed case in Anchorage and no cases connected to the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, we believe that we must do all that we can to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our community, which at this time calls for us to minimize gatherings while maintaining the cleanest environment possible pursuant to the recommendations of local, state and federal authorities.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
