Angoon is experiencing its first coronavirus outbreak in months. The community has reported ten new COVID cases in the last week.

According to a post on the city’s Facebook page, they are awaiting more test results from public health, but anticipate there could be more cases.  City officials are asking people to stay home if they’ve tested positive for the virus, and asking residents to continue masking and maintaining social distance.
