Ketchikan Assembly to consider mandate request to Gov. Dunleavy

    Ketchikan, Alaska (KINY) - The Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly will take up discussion on a resolution requesting Gov. Mike Dunleavy enact a 14-day quarantine health mandate.

    The mandate would be for all interstate and intrastate travel, with testing upon arrival as a means to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

    The resolution was drafted by Assembly Members Felix Wong and Austin Otos. It will be discussed during Monday's meeting.

    Should the Assembly adopt the motion, a copy of the signed resolution would be distributed to the governor.

    The Ketchikan City Council is slated to consider a similar resolution when it meets on August 6.
