Dear Customers,

We hope this finds you all healthy and safe during these unprecedented times. As with the snow in Alaska, it appears COVID-19 restirctions are slowly melting away.

Alaskan Governor Michael Dunleavy announced the reopening of certain businesses in the state starting April 24, and extended the stay-at-home order until further notice, as part of the state's efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Restaurants and retail stores will be allowed to provide limited in-person services, as well as barbers and hair salons, starting April 24. However, in the city of Anchorage, reopenings will start April 27. Businesses must enhance sanitation, all workers required to wear face masks, and a proper distance between customers must be ensured. Further details regarding the guidelines that businesses must follow to reopen will be announced in the coming days.
