Alaska Geographic & COVID-19
Thank you for your ongoing support, patience, and enduring positivity as we navigate through this challenging crisis. Alaska Geographic’s staff and board of directors hope all of you are healthy and safe in these uncertain times. You are part of our extended family, and your wellbeing is important to us.
Here at Alaska Geographic, all management staff are telecommuting. We’ve eliminated all unnecessary travel and discouraged unnecessary social interactions to slow transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Our retail and education teams are working diligently to understand and respond to the impacts of this pandemic and to make prudent decisions while maintaining the ability to get up and running when the crisis passes.
As the impacts of the fast-moving COVID-19 crisis become clear, we will provide updates here as well as through other lines of communication as necessary. We do not make these decisions lightly and believe these immediate actions are in the best interest of our staff, participants, customers, and public land partners.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of us in ways that were unimaginable just a week ago. Despite the uncertainty, we are confident that Alaska Geographic will get through by putting the health and wellbeing of the community first and by following the guidance of the CDC and State of Alaska COVID-19 Health mandates.
And with the help of our amazing partners at the Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U.S. Forest Service we will continue to find creative ways to deliver our shared priorities in support of Alaska’s amazing national parks, forests, and refuges.
