State of Alaska
Resources from the Office of Governor Mike Dunleavy, Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, and Alaska Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management.
All businesses in Alaska are strongly encouraged to conduct a thorough review of their business practices and develop a plan to mitigate the potential spread of the virus within their workforce and to their customers. Businesses which have workers traveling to and within the State are strongly encouraged to develop a Community/Workforce Protective Plan (CWPP) in order to safeguard their workers and the communities that they operate in.
CI Businesses are no longer required to submit CWPPs to the Unified Command. Local EOs may require businesses operating within a community to provide a copy of their CWPP to the local government or Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Communities which enact this requirement should be aware that the Unified Command is no longer reviewing such plans.
An effective CWPP should contain, at a minimum, some discussion of the following elements:
Business Information – Size, location(s) and type of business, including information about their business model and types of interactions with customers. This section may also include Points of Contact for COVID-related issues within the organization and decision-making processes.
