Juneau Assembly calls special COVID-19 meeting

A “hunker down” order and more are on the agenda for Sunday.

City and Borough of Juneau Assembly will have a special COVID-19-focused meeting Sunday morning.

CBJ announced the meeting Saturday evening. On the agenda are a “hunker down” order, a resolution that would mandate people traveling into the city quarantine and communications with the emergency operations center.

The 10 a.m. meeting will be livestreamed on CBJ’s Facebook page and on the CBJ website.

On Friday, Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz issued a similar-sounding hunker down order that told residents to stay at home as much as possible through March 31.

Alaska Department of Health and Social Services reported there were 14 COVID-19 cases in the state as of Saturday evening. Five of the cases are listed as being unrelated to travel.
