Congressman Don Young
COVID-19’s impact is very real, growing and causing all of us to adjust our daily habits as the situation changes. Weeks ago, I did not fully grasp the severity of this crisis, but clearly, we are in the midst of an urgent public health emergency. I wanted to take a moment to discuss the COVID-19 and to encourage all Alaskans to continue following CDC guidelines and local ordinances to keep our communities safe. Don’t forget to visit my Coronavirus Resource Center for up-to-date COVID-19 communications from the CDC, and as always, don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.
Please watch my special message below, and stay safe Alaska!
