The state has put together a joint website for coronavirus resources, including input from the Department of Health and Social Services, Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and governor's office, launching the new joint

to help better serve Alaskans looking for coronavirus-related information.

The new website will be rolled out Tuesday and is said to be a one-stop shop for Alaskans as people look to navigate resources that the state is offering.

“This outbreak is an all hands on deck situation," said Gov. Mike Dunleavy in a statement released this week. "Resources are available from every State of Alaska agency working to slow the spread of COVID-19, financially help Alaskans, assist businesses, and stabilize our economy. Now all of those resources can be found in one place. By working together, we will bring Alaska through this crisis and emerge a stronger state.”

The new website includes daily case count updates, health information for those that are sick with COVID-19, and news and announcements from the state. Alaskans can also now access information for business help, impacts to state agencies, and personal financial information all in the same place.
