Greenland is bumping up financial help to companies that keep employees on their payroll, saying it will help the territory’s economy recover faster from measures put in place to contain COVID-19. 

Alaska’s government released further details of its slow restart of the economy on Wednesday, including the restrictions that will need to be respected in places like restaurants and retail stores when they reopen on Friday.
