January 13, 2022
COVID-19 cases in Wrangell are surging at their fastest rate of the nearly 2-year-old pandemic, with 67 new infections since Christmas weekend, as of Tuesday evening’s borough report.
Of those, 37 cases were recorded between Friday and Tuesday.
The post-holidays surge is certain to break Wrangell’s single-month record, when the community tallied 66 infections in November.
The borough’s Tuesday COVID update made particular note of New Year’s Eve parties, advising anyone who attended a social gathering and is experiencing any symptoms to contact SEARHC at 907-874-7000 for testing.
