CBJ: More time needed before Phase II reopenings

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The City and Borough of Juneau will not be reopening some facilities on Friday when Gov. Mike Dunleavy's Phase II of the reopening goes into effect.

    Phase II of the State of Alaska’s reopening plan includes swimming pools reopening to 50 percent capacity, as well as museums and libraries reopening to 25 percent capacity, according to a state overview.

    "Before these and other City and Borough of Juneau facilities can reopen, the Assembly will hear more information and continue the discussion on how to responsibly move forward during two Special Assembly meetings Monday," states a press release from the CBJ. "As of 2 p.m. Thursday, the state has not yet posted required protocols."

    "The City and Borough of Juneau does not intend to open public facilities, like pools and libraries, until the Assembly has had time to understand the governor’s approach and his rationale for implementing it. CBJ encourages all business owners to proceed slowly and judiciously so that Juneau’s economic reopening can be successful and done properly."
