June 25, 2020
The borough assembly held a special meeting on Friday to enter into a contract with the state of Alaska to receive payment for the borough's greeting, screening and testing services currently in place at the Petersburg Airport.
As per the updated state health mandate #10, those coming into the state will either have to show proof that they received a negative COVID-19 test result three days before arriving in Alaska, receive a negative test result upon entering Alaska or quarantine for 14 days before being allowed to move about Alaskan communities.
