Public Health Emergency Ordinance No. 2021-3 - In Effect
After two weeks of public hearings, and written and in-person testimony from thousands of residents, the Anchorage Assembly has passed Emergency Ordinance
No. EO 2021-3, an emergency
ordinance of the Anchorage Municipal Assembly regarding public health and
safety measures for the COVID-19 pandemic, with the goal to slow the spread of COVID-19 and allow our health care system to return to a stable level. The public testimony played a significant role in shaping the revised Emergency Ordinance that was passed. On October 14, the Assembly overturned the Mayor's veto of EO 2021-3, meaning that EO 2021-3 is still in effect.
