City of Seward COVID-19 Response

A Community Message from Seward City Manager Scott Meszaros

The City of Seward is adopting the phase-in plan for reopening the State of Alaska and its individual communities.  Beginning April 24, 2020, the State of Alaska begins phase 1-A of its “Reopen Alaska Responsibly Plan.”  The terms of this plan and its impact on Seward businesses can be found in State of Alaska Public Health Mandate 16, which is posted on the City website at www.cityofseward.us [see below].

As many Seward businesses move towards opened doors this weekend, please remember that our community remains vulnerable to COVID-19 and we must all continue to do our part to reduce the risk of infection among Seward’s residents and its visitors. 

In preparation for the City’s own reopening of public facilities and City offices, the City extended public facility closures until May 3, 2020. The City administration and staff will be working diligently to develop a responsible reopening plan for City offices before May 3rd. The purpose of such a plan will be to ensure the public health and safety when entering City-owned and operated facilities, as well as to protect City employees from COVID-19 exposure. 

While the City of Seward remains optimistic about the State of Alaska’s “Reopen Alaska Responsibly Plan,” we will continue to diligently monitor the progression of COVID-19 within Seward and the social distancing and other measures necessary to combat it.  I would also like to express my sincere gratitude on behalf of the City to all the businesses who have submitted mutual aid agreements and/or posted business protocols and measures on their entrances.  Your collaboration and excellent corporate citizenship are essential during these difficult times. 

Thank you for keeping our residents and visitors safe.

Scott W. Meszaros, CM, CMC

Seward City Manager
