Last Friday, May 22, Gov. Mike Dunleavy lifted many of the state's health mandates, allowing businesses around Alaska to open at full capacity. While Dunleavy recommends that people continue practicing social distancing, mask wearing, and frequent hand washing and disinfecting, he left it up to business owners to decide how to enforce these recommendations within their own establishments. 

 

Here to talk with us about running a business throughout the pandemic is Tracey Wilbanks of Windy Willow Hair and Nail Salon in Bethel. Not only has she managed to keep her business afloat during the pandemic, but she also recently expanded it.
