CBJ reports 5 new COVID-19 cases on Monday

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

    These cases came in over the weekend and on Monday.

    Public Health is attributing two of the cases to community spread, two to secondary transmission, and one is under investigation.

    One of the seven Juneau resident cases reported on Friday is actually a non-resident case from the mining sector. The case count numbers have been adjusted to reflect that correction.

    Cumulatively, Juneau has had 293 residents test positive for COVID-19 since March and 99 nonresidents. There are 23 active cases in Juneau and 368 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.

    Statewide, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services reports 117 new people with COVID-19 – 115 are residents and two are non-residents. Alaska has had 7,597 cumulative resident cases of COVID-19 and a total of 952 non-residents.

    On Sunday, the state reported four additional deaths, bringing the total number of deaths to 56. Three of the deaths occurred recently – a male Anchorage resident in his 80s, a male Anchorage resident in his 70s, and a female Anchorage resident in her 60s.

    One death was identified during the CDC’s standard death certificate review – a male Anchorage resident in his 70s died in August.
