Alaska Caring Notes

“Alaska Caring Notes” is an initiative to encourage children who are home from school to take time to write notes, upload a drawing, or send a video to residents in nursing homes. We know this is a difficult and lonely time and this is an Alaskan way to spread some happiness throughout our nursing homes. Let’s flood their homes with love!

Alaska Health and Social Services provides COVID-19 weekly updates from the previous week’s data. Here is the update for July 26 – August 1 and some interesting highlights from the data:

· Alaska continues to have rapid increases in resident and nonresident new cases.

· Transmission between Alaskans at social gatherings, within families, at community events, churches and bars has significantly contributed to the rise in cases.

· Most new cases in Alaskans are acquired from other Alaskans who have not traveled.

· Total cases in Alaska residents rose 30% this week with 755 new cases, the most Alaska has had in a single week.

· Cases are expected to continue to rise, although several communities have adopted more restrictions.

· There were more than four times as many people hospitalized from COVID-19 in July as there were in June or previous months.

· The majority of new cases continue to be among younger adults, particularly Alaskans in their 20s and 30s.

· Most nonresident cases have been identified before the person had significant community interaction.
