Delta variant likely cause of Juneau’s increased case activity
The Delta variant is now the predominant strain in Alaska – a variant that is at least twice as transmissible as the original coronavirus strain that emerged from China in 2019. This is likely to be causing Juneau’s significant increase in case activity. It’s time to become vigilant again, even if you’re fully vaccinated. Wear a mask while indoors, minimize your social bubble, wash your hands often, and get tested if you are at all symptomatic.
