Isolation

In Unalaska, fish processors have joined forces with the city to create an isolation and quarantine facility, designed partly to serve the transient fishermen who pass through the town. According to the organizers, this model—a partnership between a city and a private company—might be unique in the country. 

 

The facility is in a two-story building at the edge of town, right behind the local Safeway. It's long, and grey, and looks, from the outside, like a standard company bunkhouse.
