A Letter to Calista Shareholders Regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic
March 12, 2020
Calista Corporation is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and adjusting our business practices, travel, and event schedules.
Among the steps taken, we have indefinitely postponed our Board’s Shareholder Relations Committee meetings scheduled in the Region in the coming weeks.
It is crucial to understand that many rural Alaska villages do not have running water, reliable internet access, and easy access to hospitals. Furthermore, with a lack of adequate housing, it is difficult for village residents to remain at a distance from ill people who are coughing or sneezing.
This makes it all the more important for all of us to do everything we can to limit the spread of this virus, and to continue advocating for better sanitation, improved infrastructure, housing, and health care facilities in our communities.
We strongly encourage all of our Shareholders to love and protect each other by following public health advisories and recommendations from local, state and federal agencies and tribal organizations.
