DHS says maritime workers considered ‘essential’ during COVID-19 closures


Of course we are, we’re just not treated that way very often, and frankly I don’t need medals, parades or to be conflated with the military.

I just want to go into the Hall and see enough jobs posted so that I can work and support my spouse without stress.


State of Alaska is requiring COVID-19 protocols for transportation workers be submitted by the transportation company to the state by 1500 today, or risk the possibility of these workers being put in quarantine. Here is the link to the state site:

  1. The 15:00, 24 March 2020 deadline for plan submission is only for travel planned prior to 01 May 2020. For all workers traveling after 01 May, those plans may be submitted at a later date, to be determined.
