Sitka has adopted an advisory strategy developed by the governor’s office: Yellow, Orange, and Red based on the local infection rate, averaged over 14 days.

Sitka EMS captain Rob Janik explains the city’s new color-code advisory system (Yellow, Orange, Red) for managing the COVID-19 pandemic in the community. The system mirrors recommendations from the governor’s office, but differs slightly from the color scheme used by the Department of Education (Green, Yellow, Red).
