Discussion included emphasis on directing funding for the safety of all Alaskans with deep concern regarding reports of higher levels of domestic violence, suicide and substance use and abuse within our communities during this time.  Murkowski stated being very aware that shelter in place might not be a safe place for the most vulnerable among us.  Local and State government discussion involved the Cares Act, the Postal Service and ensuring we have in place the funding for behavioral and mental health support within our Alaskan communities.

 

How many confirmed cases of COVID-19 are there in Alaska?
