Gov. Mike Dunleavy has been hosting live press conferences at 5 pm Monday through Friday to update Alaskans on the progress his administration is making in vanquishing the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Questions from the reporters are about rules and mandates, testing, and local issues.
But the public can also watch these press conferences, which often go for about an hour and feature Dr. Anne Zink, Chief Medical Officer, and Commissioner Adam Crum of the Department of Health and Social Services.
During Friday’s edition of the “daily presser,” one public viewer on the video feed gave a whole new meaning to the phrase “presser” in his comments, captured during Dunleavy’s remarks: If he can get that close to a hairdresser, why not an exotic dancer at the Alaska Bush Company?
(This will certainly be a topic at the Monday morning planning meeting, we presume. As the state government gets its fingers into the running of businesses during the pandemic, this rule making process should be interesting to watch.)
