Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources
Dear State Employees,
The State of Alaska is closely monitoring
an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel coronavirus
(COVID-19). While there is no evidence that COVID-19 is spreading in Alaska
at this time, cases have been identified in over a dozen states, including
evidence of community transmission in some areas.
With the developing coronavirus situation,
we want to ensure you have accurate information about the illness and are
aware of resources available to you as a State employee. For this reason,
the Division of Personnel and Labor relations has created a FAQ document
and webpage detailing important information and resources available to
State employees related to the virus. The FAQ document, which you will find
attached, discusses symptoms, what to do if you exhibit symptoms, options
for State employees who must care for sick loved ones, resources available
to state employees to prevent illness in the workplace, and other important
I encourage you to take a moment to review
the document when you have a time. The information contained in the
document is also available at http://doa.alaska.gov/dop/directorsOffice/covid19/,
where it will be updated as more information becomes available.
If you have any questions not addresses in
the FAQ document, please contact your HR manager directly.
