BREAKING: Kodiak’s eighth and ninth positive COVID-19 cases announced Friday

In a press release Friday afternoon, the Kodiak Area Emergency Services Organization announced two new positive test results for COVID-19 in Kodiak.

Both cases are believed to be community spread. At this time, the ESC has not indicated if these are resident or non-resident cases. The individuals are in self-isolation.

Public health officials have made contact with the individuals and will monitor their condition and care. A contact investigation is underway.

The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services announced 30 new cases in the state today.  These new cases include twenty residents and ten non-residents.

Because Kodiak announced cases number eight and nine today, they probably won’t be reflected in the total state count until this weekend.

This is a developing story.
