Beginning today, DHSS will be updating most data on the Alaska COVID-19 Information Hub three times weekly (Monday, Wednesday and Friday excluding holidays) instead of five times weekly (Monday through Friday excluding holidays). The two exceptions will be the hospital data and vaccine monitoring dashboards, which will continue to update data Monday through Friday excluding holidays. The daily summary email and social media posts will move to the three times weekly schedule.
