Host Kathleen Gustafson had a special surprise guest on Thursday morning’s Covid Brief. Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Anne Zink phoned in from the Sterling Highway, as she was being driven from Kenai to Homer for events later in the day.
    Zink noted that Alaska has lowered its Covid-19 alert status to ‘orange,’ which is as low as it's been in a year. A lot of that could be credited to the aggressive rollout of vaccines, which have proven incredibly effective.
