Alaska News Nightly: Thursday, November 5, 2020

A samoan man in a black collared t-shirt and a black oakland raiders mask gives a 'shaka' sign at his desk.
Pastor Moe Tali shows the ‘shaka’ sign, which he’s used as a greeting at the Island Revival Church instead of the customary hug on Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020. Tali has been working with city and state health officials on public health education campaigns, and says he’s made a lot of adjustments to his services such as not serving food and shortening the length of services. But he says there’s still work to do. (Lex Treinen/Alaska Public Media)
