The trajectory of Covid-19 is significantly different than the Council anticipated in June when planning for in-person meetings this fall. The current status of community transmission rates and infections in Alaska is high, and projected to remain so through November; and the resilience of the local medical infrastructure (for example, ICU bed capacity and medical staffing) is significantly impacted. https://www.npfmc.org/virtual-meetings-through-december/
