April 14, 2020 (Anchorage, AK) – Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy today announced the suspension of certain regulations and statutes to provide relief to individuals and businesses impacted by COVID-19.
The COVID-19 Disaster Order of Suspension No. 2 Appendix A – Amendment 3 suspends certain regulations and statutes within the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development to allow for the curbside pickup of alcohol from restaurants, breweries, distilleries, and retail stores, as well as the delivery of sealed beer and wine from restaurants with food orders. Appendix A – Amendment 3 further suspends certain regulations and statutes within the Department of Administration and the Department of Education and Early Development.
“Alaska’s hospitality industry is a robust and significant pillar of our state’s economy. By allowing for the curbside pickup of food and drink from our restaurants and the additional delivery of beer and wine with food orders, we are able to provide some relief to Alaskan business owners while upholding our social distancing health mandates,” said Governor Mike Dunleavy. “My administration will continue to monitor the COVID-19 impacts within our state and seek ways to reopen Alaska’s economy as appropriate.”
On March 31, 2020, Governor Dunleavy signed the COVID-19 Disaster Order of Suspension No. 2. This action suspended certain fees and fines within the Department of Health and Social Services, Department of Administration, Department of Commerce, Department of Labor, and the Department of Revenue through May 11, 2020 unless otherwise noted.
Governor Dunleavy, with the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, in March announced COVID-19 Health Mandate 003 on Statewide Closure of Restaurants, Bars, and Entertainment, and COVID-19 Health Mandate 011 on Social Distancing.
