September 29, 2020 – News

The City and Borough of Juneau Emergency Operations Center is reporting three new Juneau residents with COVID-19. Public Health is attributing two of the cases to secondary transmission and one is under investigation.

Last Friday, the EOC conducted a round of testing for individuals among the vulnerable population at the Glory Hall, AWARE, and Housing First. This was done out of an abundance of caution after two Juneau residents without permanent housing had tested positive for COVID-19. All 102 tests have come back negative.

Cumulatively, Juneau has had 296 residents test positive for COVID-19 since March and 99 nonresidents. There are 23 active cases in Juneau and 371 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, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services reports 120 new people with COVID-19 – 118 are residents and two are nonresidents. Alaska has had 7,721 cumulative resident cases of COVID-19 and a total of 953 nonresidents.
