The city warned Unalaskans Thursday of possible transmission of the coronavirus between seafood industry workers and the larger Unalaska community. 

"The community is most definitely at a high local risk factor for COVID-19, in fact, more serious than at any time since the start of the pandemic," the city said in a statement. "The vaccine provides hope, but vaccine supply has limited our ability to vaccinate everyone who wants to receive it."
