• Although the state fully reopened on May 22, Anchorage took a slower approach to ease restrictions. Anchorage reduced COVID-19 restrictions on January 1, allowing indoor service in bars and restaurants at 25% capacity. Alcohol service must stop at 11 p.m.
  • As of May 22, the state opened up all businesses at 100 percent occupancy. Restaurants and bars currently have no imposed capacity limits and are not required to enforce social distancing. These establishments are not required to adhere to sanitation requirements. Reservations are recommended but not required.
  • Local communities will continue to have the option of keeping stricter rules.
  • The Governor said they will monitor their COVID-19 numbers after the business reopening and will be prepared to tighten restrictions again, but he “doesn’t believe that will be necessary.”
