The Anchorage Assembly has a resolution it will consider at Tuesday’s meeting that asks the mayor to reinstate a mask mandate in all municipal buildings.
The rationale being give by Assemblyman Pete Petersen and Assemblywoman Meg Zaletel is that the Delta variant of the Covid virus is circulating in Alaska and around the U.S., and that Alaska has seen a spike in cases in recent weeks, hospitals are overwhelmed.
Hospital administrators are expected to show up at the meeting and testify on the item, which has not been scheduled for any public hearings; any public comment on this item will need to be done at the beginning of the meeting, as time allows.
The Assembly meeting begins at 5 pm at the Loussac Library in midtown Anchorage. The agenda item is at this link.
