January 26, 2021 – News

Over the 14-day period from January 10 to January 24, there were 60 people in Juneau who tested positive for COVID-19 (that’s up from 42 during the previous two weeks):

  • There was no reported case activity associated with a cluster. There has been some heightened case activity passing through larger families.
  • Public Health attributed 45 percent of cases to secondary transmission, 23.5 percent to out-of-state travel, 20 percent to community spread, and 11.5 percent of the cases remain under investigation.
  • 95 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 29), and was slightly more prevalent in males than females (60 percent/40 percent)

The disease continues to move across all disease acquisition types: secondary transmission, travel, and community spread. 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.
