The City of Unalaska will close the Aquatics Center, Library, and Department of Parks, Culture, and Recreation to the public starting on Monday, March 16. 

The announcement came a day after Gov. Mike Dunleavy extended public schools' spring break by a week due to concern over coronavirus. With schools shuttered until March 30, the city felt that closing other community centers was a necessary next step.
