The state reported no new cases for Juneau. However, City and Borough of Juneau announced one of the seven resident cases reported Wednesday in the capital city is a Bartlett Regional Hospital employee.
They are the second hospital employee to test positive and will not return to work until the state determines there is no further risk of transmission, according to a City and Borough of Juneau news release. Safety protocols already in place at the hospital mean potential COVID-19 exposure is not widespread among hospital employees, and no patients were identified as close contacts.
Juneau has had 73 resident cases and 40 nonresident cases so far, according to the city. So far, 54 residents have recovered, and 17 cases are currently considered active. Twenty-nine nonresident cases are active.
People with active cases are in isolation, according to the city, and Public Health nurses in Juneau are tracking 26 close contacts.
