Wrangell officials announced one new case of COVID-19, bringing the total number of known active cases in the community to two as of Monday evening. The city did not say whether the individual has symptoms or whether it’s known how the person contracted the coronavirus.

Wrangell has a face-covering ordinance in place for indoor, public spaces. The mandate was passed after the community recently hit a record of 16 active cases. All but one of those cases has fully recovered, the city said.

For Wrangellites without symptoms, testing is available daily at the airport during jet arrivals. Anyone with symptoms or other COVID questions can call the Wrangell Medical Center at 874-7000. 

And anyone 16 and older wanting to get vaccinated against COVID-19 can sign up to receive a vaccine at covid19.searhc.org.
