Juneau’s 14-day COVID-19 recap: Sept. 28 – Oct. 11

October 14, 2020 – News

Over the 14-day period from September 28 to October 11, 27 people in Juneau tested positive for COVID-19:

  • Public Health attributed 52 percent of the cases to community spread. This figure is up from 37.5 percent from last week. 18.5 percent of the cases were designated as secondary infection, and 29.5 percent of the cases remained under investigation.
  • One new cluster was identified in the vulnerable/unsheltered population. In this 14-day period, 63 percent of the cases are associated with this cluster.
  • The average number of close contacts per positive case is 1.53. 81 percent of the 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 cautions and, in particular, to refrain from indoor, unmasked activities with individuals outside of family/social bubbles. The community is encouraged to be COVID-conscious while traveling and to follow strict social distancing upon return to the community until two negative test results are returned, or 14 days have passed, whichever is earlier.
