Unalaska's Community Center, Aquatics Center gym, and Public Library are reopening June 1, with restrictions.

 

While the Parks, Culture, and Recreation (PCR) facilities have remained closed since March 16, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the State of Alaska is now reopening under Gov. Mike Dunleavy's Reopen Alaska Responsibly Plan, and the City of Unalaska is following suit.

More than 100 people gathered Saturday at Unalaska's high school to mourn the death of 18-year-old Alexis Magalong, a senior who was reported missing and later found dead over the weekend. 

Superintendent John Conwell said he'd known Magalong since she was three years old. He remembered her as a "remarkable young lady" and skilled basketball player.
