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.
