Since mid-March, Unalaskans have been hunkering down and socially isolating due to the COVID-19 pandemic. People have been avoiding crowds and public spaces such as bars, restaurants, and supermarkets—and spending more time in their own kitchens.

Over the past couple months, I have been putting together an Unalaska quarantine kitchen cookbook—sitting down with a few locals to hear about what kind of experiments, recipes, and memories they've been cooking up during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Unalaska City School District plans to move forward with reopening its schools for the upcoming academic year.

The district plans to open under the state's Smart Start 2020 framework on August 19. The first three days will be a soft opening, "where just a third of the students will come each of the first three days," said Superintendent John Conwell at a special school board meeting on Wednesday.

After having been closed to the public for over three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Unalaska's Museum of the Aleutians has begun its limited reopening.

Starting Tuesday—and in observation of certain regulations—patrons can once again visit the museum.

The Memorial Day remembrance service in Unalaska this year wasn't quite what it had been in the past. While the early spring weather was characteristically unpredictable, attendees stood apart from one another, donned masks, or watched from their vehicles as Mayor Vince Tutiakoff Sr. addressed the community and recognized the sacrifices made by military veterans, current service members, interned Unangax̂, and fishermen lost at sea.
