CBJ reports four COVID-19 cases in Juneau

January 22, 2021 – News

The City and Borough of Juneau Emergency Operations Center is reporting four individuals identified with COVID-19 in Juneau – two are residents and two are nonresidents. Public Health is attributing the two resident cases to community spread. One of the nonresident cases is new; the other is an older case not previously reported. Both nonresidents are from the mining sector.

Please note: The resident count includes Juneau residents in Juneau, Juneau residents outside of Juneau, and Alaska residents currently located in Juneau. This differs from how the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services counts cases. DHSS bases the location of the case on the resident’s permanent address. When CBJ’s resident count includes Juneau residents outside of Juneau, it is noted within the case count update. The nonresident count is made up entirely of non-Alaska residents who are in Juneau.

Cumulatively, Juneau has had 1,027 residents test positive for COVID-19 since March and 132 nonresidents. There are 29 active cases in Juneau and 1,125 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.

Statewide, DHSS today reports 290 new people identified with COVID-19 – 262 are residents and 28 are nonresidents. Alaska has had 51,204 cumulative resident cases of COVID-19 and a total of 1,697 nonresidents.

Vaccine information

According to DHSS, 3,786 people in the Juneau region have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine – either Pfizer or Moderna – and 973 have completed both doses. Statewide, 72,145 people have received their first dose and 16,186 have completed both doses.
