Juneau’s 14-day COVID-19 recap: Nov. 23 – Dec. 6

December 9, 2020 – News

Over the 14-day period from November 23 to December 6, there were 94 people in Juneau who tested positive for COVID-19 (that’s down from 109 during the previous two weeks):

  • There were no ongoing clusters during this time period.
  • Public Health attributed 55.5 percent of cases to secondary transmission, 23.5 percent to community spread, seven percent to out-of-state travel, and 15 percent of the cases remain under investigation.
  • 90 percent of cases were contacted within 24 hours of a positive test being returned.
  • Disease spread is across all age groups, most racial groups (the category of individuals who self-identified as white is highest with 38), and is slightly more prevalent in females than males (55 percent/45 percent)

Contact tracing is improving slightly, but remains constrained due to the statewide caseload. Those who test positive are encouraged to immediately call their own close contacts. Read more about what to do here. The disease is moving via all disease acquisition types: secondary transmission, travel, and community spread. Residents must take appropriate cautions, including limiting social bubbles to immediate household members.
