CRAIG (KDN) — The Craig Tribal Association has suspended its Public Transit System until April 4, according to information from Transportation Director Damon Woudenberg. This is subject to change and is posted at all the bus stops. Updates can be heard on the system’s phone line and found on its Facebook page, he said.

This comes after Friday’s health alert from the State of Alaska, calling Alaskans back home, encouraging visitors to return to their home states, and strongly advising Alaskans to cease non-essential personal, business and medical travel, whether within or out-of-state.

The Inter-Island Ferry Authority is operating as usual to facilitate the request that all Alaskans return home, IFA General Manager Ron Curtis said Sunday morning.   

Meanwhile, Island Air Express will continue providing essential passenger, mail, and air freight transportation to and from Prince of Wales Island until told otherwise by the State or Federal government, said Island Air Express Owner/Director of Operations Scott Van Valin in an email.  

The company is limiting its scheduled flights, however, based on fluctuating flight loads, and passengers should call or email to confirm flight status 24 hours in advance.

Taquan Air could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
