    ANCHORAGE — Today, Mayor Ethan Berkowitz announced additional public health measures to protect Anchorage residents against COVID-19.
    Restrictions and Closures: Bars, Breweries, Restaurants and Entertainment Facilities
    Mayor Berkowitz signed Emergency Order EO-01, which regulates bars, breweries and restaurants in order to preserve public safety and welfare. Starting at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, March 16, dine-in service for food or drink at bars, breweries and restaurants will be prohibited until 11:59 p.m. on March 31. All buffets and salad bars will be closed to self-service. Drive-thru, take-out, and delivery services are allowed. This restriction does not apply to grocery stores.
     
    In addition to these restrictions, all entertainment facilities including theaters, gyms, and bingo halls will be closed starting at 5:00 p.m., Monday, March 16 until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31. All buffets and salad-bars will be closed to self-service.
    “By making sacrifices now, we reduce the likelihood that we will pay a larger cost later,” said Mayor Ethan Berkowitz. “These closures are consistent with CDC recommendations and with our strategy of doing what we can to reduce the possibility of transmitting COVID-19. As a friend told me, ‘It will be impossible to know if we overreacted or did too much, but it will be quite apparent if we underreacted or did too little’.”
    Banning all gatherings with more than 50 people
    The Mayor’s Emergency Order includes a ban on all events and mass gatherings with 50 people or more starting at 5:00 p.m., Monday, March 16 until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31.
     
    Municipal Employees to Implement Social Distancing Practices
    Beginning Tuesday, March 17, the Municipality will institute additional social distancing measures to minimize the risk of COVID-19 to Municipal employees. This includes increased use of tele-work practices, staggering shift times for certain departments and increased use of videoconference technology.
    These measures do not impact police or fire services.

  • Welcome to Chugiak-Eagle River - The Most Livable and Unique Community in Alaska! Welcome to Chugiak-Eagle River - The Most Livable and Unique Community in Alaska!

    Overview

    Nestled between two major river valleys in South-central Alaska, the Chugiak-Eagle River area is surrounded by beautiful Alaska wilderness.  The community is known statewide as the gateway to Chugach State Park, 495 thousand acres of rugged untouched terrain, and home to brown and black bear, moose, wolves, wolverine, lynx, fox, porcupine, beaver, spawning salmon, and a wide variety of birds including the majestic Bald Eagle.  It is a place where people have the unique opportunity to blend a community lifestyle, and reside in close proximity to an urban area. Additionally, residents and visitors enjoy the experience of pristine wilderness that exists right at the edge of the Last Frontier.

    Downtown Eagle River and business areas in Chugiak/Peters Creek have a variety of shops providing all the necessary amenities for a quality lifestyle.  Most all goods and services are available locally, but if you can't find that "special something," the downtown area of Anchorage is located approximately 12 miles to the south.  The community is connected with Anchorage via a modern fully lit six-lane highway which traverses natural and scenic military lands. To the North, approximately 20 miles away, The Mat-Su (Matanuska Susitna) Borough is full of adventures and home to Wasilla, Alaska’s fastest growing area.
