Juneau’s 14-day COVID-19 recap: March 1-14

March 17, 2021 – News

Over the 14-day period from March 1 to March 14, there were 28 people in Juneau who tested positive for COVID-19 (that’s up slightly from 26 during the previous two weeks):

  • Seven percent of the cases were associated with a cluster at a small Juneau business. That cluster had 11 total cases, and all have recovered. Public Health considers the cluster closed.
  • Public Health attributed 32 percent of cases to secondary transmission, 29 percent to community spread, 21 percent to out-of-state travel, and 18 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 age 69 and under age groups, various racial groups (the category of individuals who self-identify as white is highest with 14), and was equally split between males and females (50 percent/50 percent).

The community continues to see COVID-19 transmit via community spread, secondary infection, 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.
