Over the 14-day period from February 8 to February 21, there were 39 people in Juneau who tested positive for COVID-19 (that’s up from 23 during the previous two weeks):

  • No cases were associated with cluster activity. There is heightened case activity passing through larger families.
  • Public Health attributed 59 percent of cases to secondary transmission, 31 percent to community spread, 2.5 percent to out-of-state travel, and 7.5 percent of the cases remain under investigation.
  • 100 percent of cases were contacted for contact tracing within 24 hours of a positive test being returned.
  • Disease spread was across all age groups, most racial groups (the category of individuals who self-identify as white is highest with 16), and was more prevalent in males than females (69 percent/31 percent)

The disease continues to move across all disease acquisition types: community spread, secondary transmission, and travel. Residents are cautioned to strictly adhere to all health orders related to travel and to continue strict adherence to masking and social distancing when outside your immediate home.
