Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


State of Alaska Employees,


The outbreak of COVID-19 throughout the world is a public disaster that significantly impacts the life and health of our people, the economy of Alaska, property and the public peace. Governor Dunleavy is greatly concerned for the health, well-being, and peace of mind of our dedicated State employees. To that end, the attached guidelines address work restrictions and pay provisions for employees during the COVID-19 public health emergency. If you have any questions, please direct them to your HR Manager.


Also, for those who have AlaskaCare health insurance, I want to take a moment to remind you of a fantastic benefit you have: Teladoc! You can connect with a real doctor by video, app or phone 24/7 without leaving your house! They cover a wide range of conditions, like cold, flu, sprains, dermatological conditions, allergies, viruses, and skin infections. Then they call in your prescription to your pharmacy of choice. Call 1-855-835-2362 for Teladoc today!
