MGO 20-11

This Miscellaneous General Order replaces and supersedes the Court’s Miscellaneous General Order 20-10 concerning changes to Court operations and deadlines during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. As of the date of this Order, the President of the United States has declared a national emergency in response to the outbreak of COVID-19. The Governor of the State of Alaska declared a public health disaster emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, several municipalities throughout Alaska have declared states of emergency in response to confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Alaska. Except for individuals engaged in supporting critical infrastructure or essential services, federal, state, and local authorities have urged and—in the case of Alaska residents—have ordered individuals to avoid leaving their homes, not to participate in any public or private gatherings that include any number of non-household members, not to travel between communities, and to practice “social-distancing” when in public.
