CBJ reports 13 new COVID-19 cases in Juneau

August 14, 2020 – News

The City and Borough of Juneau Emergency Operations Center is reporting 13 new people with COVID-19 in Juneau – 12 residents and 1 nonresident. Public Health is attributing 10 of the resident cases to secondary transmission, one to community transmission, and one to out-of-state travel. The nonresident with COVID-19 is in the mining sector.

Please note, two cases previously identified as nonresidents have been corrected to be resident cases. Cumulatively, Juneau has had 140 residents test positive for COVID-19 since March and 89 nonresidents. Combined, there are 64 active cases in Juneau and 164 individuals have recovered. All individuals with active cases of COVID-19 are in isolation. There is currently one person with COVID-19 hospitalized at Bartlett Regional Hospital.

CBJ’s numbers – on cumulative case counts, and active and recovered cases – differ from the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services dashboard numbers due to more timely reporting. CBJ is in regular contact with the Public Health officials in Juneau, and CBJ’s numbers are based on information received directly from them.

Statewide, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services reports 107 new people with COVID-19 – 102 are residents and five are nonresidents. Alaska has had 4,073 cumulative resident cases of COVID-19 and a total of 796 nonresidents.

CBJ will issue its next case count update on Monday, August 17.
