February 11, 2021 – News

Over the 14-day period from January 25 to February 7, there were 46 people in Juneau who tested positive for COVID-19 (that’s down from 57 during the previous two weeks):

  • Twenty-two percent of the reported case activity was associated with a cluster at Wildflower Court. Overall, 12 people tested positive and 10 have recovered. There has been some heightened case activity passing through larger families.
  • Public Health attributed 63 percent of cases to secondary transmission, 13 percent to out-of-state travel, 13 percent to community spread, and 11 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 slightly more prevalent in males than females (61 percent/39 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.
