Story reacts to pandemic response by state

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Juneau Representative Andi Story says she's pleased with the state's response to the pandemic.

    Story said on Action Line that this is a very real health threat. "I'm pleased that the State of Alaska is working closely with our local governments because that is where we are going to be getting our health care delivery from and we want to make sure that we don't overwhelm the health system."

    By maintaining social distancing, people staying home when they can, and closing facilities, Story said the virus will be delayed and prevent everyone in Juneau getting it at the same time.   "As we know, most people really recover from this.  We just  don't want to be overwhelming the health system right now."
