No single COVID-19 solution in Alaska


The number of COVID-19 cases in Alaska remains relatively low, but the high rate of infection makes it a coronavirus hotspot. While urban centers are hit hard, many remote villages remain virus free. Also, the commercial fishing industry remains up and running posing a continuing threat to residents in port communities. Is there a single health protection policy that can apply to a places as vast and diverse as Alaska?
