Lt. Governor Listens: AK Tourism Industry The impacts of COVID-19 global pandemic have been felt across the state, but Alaska’s tourism industry has been hit especially hard by the lack of a cruise season in 2020, and the prospect of either a shortened or cancelled 2021 season. We want to hear personally from communities and businesses about how the loss of the cruise season has impacted business, and of course, how we can ensure Alaska’s tourism businesses remain viable for the 2022 season. If you have comments or concerns regarding the impacts on the Alaska tourism industry, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. LT. GOVERNOR LISTENS TOUR NEWS Lt.
