CBJ reports four new cases of COVID-19 in Juneau

September 10, 2020 – News

The City and Borough of Juneau Emergency Operations Center is reporting four new Juneau residents with COVID-19. Public Health says two of the cases appear to be community spread associated with bar activity and two cases are under investigation.

Cumulatively, Juneau has had 219 residents test positive for COVID-19 since March and 98 nonresidents. Combined, there are 36 active cases in Juneau and 279 individuals have recovered. All individuals with active cases of COVID-19 are in isolation. There are currently four people with COVID-19 hospitalized at Bartlett Regional Hospital.

CBJ’s numbers – on cumulative case counts, and active and recovered cases – differ from the Alaska 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 112 new people with COVID-19 – 111 are residents and one is a nonresident. Alaska has had 6,020 cumulative resident cases of COVID-19 and a total of 895 nonresidents.
