WELCOME TO THE CORDOVA CALENDAR for the 25th …
The city has reaffirmed that the mask rule is STILL IN PLACE in
Cordova. It has NOT been repealed. It is still in the city’s
emergency order 2020-07 as Rule 15 -- and you can read the order at
Cordova’s businesses are still operating under the state’s Phase 2
protocols. We still urge both customers and proprietors to know
the rules so people don't get each other in trouble.
Because the Phase Two protocols are no probably longer on the state
site, we have saved copies of each of them, and posted a link at
cordovaradio.com so you can be sure you’re seeing the right
documents. The fines and jail penalties for violations of state
mandates are very serious -- so again we hope both businesses and
customers will get familiar with the rules.
Ilanka and CCMC invite anyone in the community who feels the need to
get tested for covid-19 to visit one of their drive-up testing clinics.
The service is free and can provide you with peace of mind. A negative
result does NOT release you from the responsibility to comply with City
mandates for social distancing and mask wearing, and DOES NOT indicate
future results should you become infected. The testing locations are
Ilanka on Monday and Wednesday from 2-4… and CCMC Tuesday, Thursday and
Friday from 2-4. Please call CCMC at 8200 or Ilanka at 3622 to
register. Additional times are available if you are experiencing any
symptoms at all. Just call to inquire.

Remember that the city council unanimously passed its ordinance
establishing fines for those who break health mandates… and we would
remind folks that a lot of the city and state mandates are the same,
meaning you could expose yourself to state consequences as well for
violations -- so please know what’s permitted and what isn’t during the
A message from CDFU: Fishermen returning to Cordova are expected to
self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival unless they have submitted a
plan to the State of Alaska detailing how they will avoid the spread of
COVID-19 and not endanger the community. This exemption allows you to
complete essential work during your quarantine period, but you MUST
comply with the quarantine while not working. An exemption for work is
NOT a blanket exemption, and you MUST continue to abide by social
distancing guidelines. KLAM and KCDV urge Cordovans to
share this message with everyone it affects, along with the city and
state mandates. Help your friends to know what they need to know.

Dr. Anne Zink, Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer, has emphasized that
Daily regular physical activity can make a big difference in how your
child feels during the pandemic. She went on to say that Physical
activity improves your mood and eases your stress. A simple walk can
help you and your children feel less anxious and improve your sleep
that night. Remember that outdoor recreation is allowed under
state and local mandates as long as you have completed any required
quarantine, and if you practice proper social distancing.
The city has successfully launched its new website dedicated to
covid-19 response. It’s intended to be a one stop show for the

The new Port Authority Task Force oversees entry to the Airport, Harbor
and Ferry… and they’re looking for volunteers as they meet each plane

N95 mask, a high visibility vest, and of course, safety training!
