Alaska Governor to Outline Plans to Reopen Economy

Gov. Mike Dunleavy said Alaskans soon could be making appointments at barbershops and nail salons again, as the state looks to further reopen parts of the economy shut down or restricted over coronavirus concerns.

Dunleavy on Monday said details are expected this week. Other areas he said were being looked at include restaurants and retail shops, businesses he said employ many people and could put in place safety protocols while meeting demand for services.

The state feels pretty good about its numbers and its health care capacity, equipment and ability to track cases, he said Monday. The state has reported at least 321 cases of COVID-19, with 161 of those cases recovered and nine deaths. (Read more from “Alaska Governor to Outline Plans to Reopen Economy” HERE)
