CBJ reports 13 new cases of COVID-19

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The City and Borough of Juneau Emergency Operations Center is reporting 13 new Juneau residents with COVID-19.

    Public Health is attributing five of the cases to secondary transmission and the rest are under investigation. Four of these new cases are linked to the August social gathering, bringing that cluster total to 31 so far.

    Cumulatively, Juneau has had 252 residents test positive for COVID-19 since March and 98 nonresidents. There are 47 active cases in Juneau and 302 individuals have recovered. All individuals with active cases of COVID-19 are in isolation.

    There are currently three people with COVID-19 hospitalized at Bartlett Regional Hospital.

    CBJ’s numbers – on cumulative case counts, and active and recovered cases – differ from the Alaska Health and Social Services dashboard numbers due to more timely reporting. CBJ is in regular contact with the Public Health officials in Juneau, and CBJ’s numbers are based on information received directly from them.

    Statewide, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services reports 43 new people with COVID-19 – 42 are residents and one is a nonresident. Alaska has had 6,395 cumulative resident cases of COVID-19 and a total of 918 nonresidents.
