The state reported Monday 30 new cases of COVID-19 across the state.

Those new cases included 28 residents and two nonresidents, according to Alaska Department of Health and Social Services data. One of the new nonresident cases was for City and Borough of Juneau. DHSS did not list the reason the person is visiting Juneau. This is the city’s fifth nonresident case, and its only active nonresident case, according to CBJ’s COVID-19 dashboard.

Sunday, the state reported 27 new cases involving Alaskans and five nonresident cases. None of those cases were reported for Juneau. Saturday, 55 new cases — 48 residents and seven nonresidents — and a death were reported. One of the nonresident cases reported over the weekend was for Juneau.

Statewide, there have now been 1,166 cumulative COVID-19 cases involving Alaskans, according to state data.

Of those cases, 598 are active, 552 people have recovered and 16 people have died with COVID-19.

There have been 237 total nonresident cases, according to state data.

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, breathing trouble, sore throat, muscle pain and loss of taste or smell. Most people develop only mild symptoms. But some people, usually those with other medical complications, develop more severe symptoms, including pneumonia that can be fatal.
