Craig City staff was notified by Alaska Public Health on Saturday, June 20th of a fourth confirmed COVID-19 case in Craig. Public Health and the Alaska Division of Epidemiology are currently conducting a case investigation.

The Craig Emergency Operations Center (EOC) was notified that the fourth case is an out of state worker. The patient is now in isolation. Public Health will conduct an investigation and will contact any persons who were in contact with the patient. Origin of this case is contact with another Craig COVID-19 case.

Of the six confirmed POW cases to date, five are now classified as recovered.

The Craig Emergency Operations Center staff will continue to meet and will determine what actions need to be taken in light of the confirmed case in Craig.

With summer upon us, we strongly advise residents to follow all health mandates and advisories to reduce the risk of spreading the virus in Craig. These measures include:

• Stay home as much as possible
• Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face as much as possible
