ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Mat-Su Borough officials met Wednesday to give an update to valley residents about COVID-19.
Some highlights from the press conference:
- Summer tourism isn't looking to good. Officials hope to target in-state travelers with cabin fever once the stay-put orders lift.
- Dr. Zink has told health providers the state has requested 2 million test kits, enough for each Alaskan to get tested 3 times.
- Capstone health clinic has created mobile facilities to screen respiratory infections so that COVID-19 patients or suspected patients are not coming into clinics where patients need to access other types of health care.
- Bonnie Quill, with the Mat-Su Convention, and Visitors Bureau says Canada has closed all ports through June 30.
