Anchorage now has more stringent restrictions for out of state visitors.

The Associated Press (AP) reports that Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz signed an emergency order Friday to implement additional coronavirus related restrictions on out of state travelers.

The new rules issued by the Municipality of Anchorage create a status for travelers where they don't have to be in strict quarantine, but they need to limit in-person interaction.

If an out of state traveler shows proof of a negative COVID-19 test, they still need to have minimal in-person interaction for 14 days.

They cannot dine-in at restaurants or access indoor facilities like museums, theaters, or indoor gyms.

They also must wear face coverings if they are around people who aren't members of their household, they are are allowed to order takeout or curbside delivery, and they can recreate outdoors.

AP also reports it is unclear how how the new policy will be enforced.

Businesses may refuse service to people who are in quarantine, or in minimal interaction status.
