Alaska governor announces new emergency virus declaration


November 12, 2020

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska’s governor has announced a new COVID-19 disaster declaration for the state that will take effect Nov. 16 and last 30 days.

Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy announced the updated declaration on Friday, ahead of the scheduled expiration of the emergency declaration he issued in March.

Dunleavy said he took action because of “the rise in cases, and given the uncertainty over the next two to three months,” he said.

The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services on Saturday reported that the state hit a daily record in newly confirmed coronavirus cases.
