    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Alaska Marine Highway System waived cancellation fees for those who want to avoid traveling right now.

    The fees are canceled until April 8.

    To cancel or make changes to an itinerary you can contact the AMHS reservation call center at 1-800-642-0066.

    The system also is following all federal government guidance to clean and disinfect ships and terminals.

    These adjustments include intensified cleaning of the terminals with virox wipes used on high touch areas like ticket counters, doors, and tables.

    All terminal restrooms will be disinfected three times per day.

    No physical contact is allowed between employees and customers.

    Customers will be asked to read credit card information rather than have staff touch the cards.

    Certain food items like salad bars, self-serve and unwrapped food items will be removed from the ship food service areas.
