The City of Unalaska's Department of Parks, Culture, and Recreation will be hosting a Fourth of July Parade on Saturday. 

In lieu of a fireworks show—which was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, the uncertainty of air travel, and quarantine requirements—the PCR will be holding a parade that meets local and statewide health mandates.

 

The parade route has been extended to help community members observe social distancing regulations.

The City of Unalaska has decided to expand its local 14-day quarantine requirement to allow individuals to recreate. The new order went into effect Wednesday.

Under the city's previous health order, anyone traveling by vessel or airplane into Unalaska was mandated to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival and monitor for symptoms of illness without leaving their quarantine location. The mandate did not allow for people to hike, go to the beach, or fish.
