October 11, 2021 – News

As Juneau continues to see high COVID-19 case counts, Alaska State Epidemiologist Dr. Joe McLaughlin has this guidance on what people can do today – right now – to slow the spread:

“Getting vaccinated is the best long-term strategy to keep yourself and others safe from COVID-19. However, it takes two weeks after you’ve completed your vaccine series for your body to build up maximal protection. In the meantime, there are additional things you can do today to help, such as wearing a mask in public, social distancing, and avoiding crowds. Regardless of your vaccination status, please use these prevention measures to help us slow the spread.”
