JUNEAU — Alaska is at low risk for Ebola infections but the risk is real, and the state is taking steps to be prepared, Gov. Sean Parnell said Thursday.
During a news conference in Anchorage with state health officials, Parnell said we live in an interconnected world, with Alaska serving as an international crossroads.
“So we want to be conscious of that,” he said. “And we are preparing for the worst-case scenario — even though we are at low risk — so that we can be prepared for any event.”
