Happy New Year 2021!
The Northwest Arctic Borough, Our Region, and Our Nation have faced an unprecedented public health pandemic which has changed many lives and the course of my term in office.
From the onset of the COVID-19 virus and the Borough’s Disaster Declaration in March of 2020, we have had to continue to perform business as usual, but in a different way. That reality includes a shuttered local economy and evaporating revenue for many non-essential local businesses and disrupted social gatherings that altered the everyday activities we rely on.
While the health clinic is rolling out the vaccination of residents, we need to continue to be vigilant and practice the health and safety measures that have been put in place to mitigate the virus by wearing masks, social distancing ourselves, and continuing to wash your hands and staying within your family bubble until health officials inform you that it is safe to do otherwise. There is light at the end of the tunnel, but we have to stay the course. We are all in this together.
Northwest Arctic Borough remains open to the public on a limited basis until further notice with front entry access and electronic document processing only. If you do not have access to a computer, you can come to the entry area to fill out forms at the desk that is provided near the entry area with social distancing requirements. The Borough’s regular business hours are Monday -Friday, 8:00am – 12:00noon and 1:00pm and 4:30pm.
We appreciate your cooperation in continuing to follow State and Local mandated health and emergency orders until further notice. If you have questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 907-442-8230 or contact the Borough Office at 907-442-2500 or by the Contact Us tab on the Website Form.
