Juneau’s 14-day COVID-19 recap: Sept. 21 – Oct. 4

October 6, 2020 – News

Over the 14-day period from September 21 to October 4, 32 people in Juneau tested positive for COVID-19:

  • Public Health attributed 37.5 percent of the cases to community spread. This figure is up from 33 percent from last week. 40.5 percent of the cases were designated as secondary infection, and 22 percent of the cases were associated with out-of-state travel.
  • No new clusters were identified. There were no new cases associated with the large social gathering/bar cluster during this time period. As a result, the cluster is considered concluded.
  • The average number of close contacts per positive case is 1.86. More than 90 percent of individuals with COVID-19 cases were contacted within 24 hours of a positive test being returned.

With community spread still happening in Juneau, people are urged to take appropriate precautions and, in particular, to refrain from indoor, unmasked activities with individuals outside of family/social bubbles.
