A resident of Unalaska has tested positive for COVID-19 after being tested for the virus during their locally-mandated 14-day quarantine period, city officials reported Friday. 

 

The individual is a family member of an employee of Westward Seafoods, Inc. (WSI). They were traveling and contracted the virus in another state, officials said.

Juneau-based Alaska Seaplanes had previously put in an offer to buy the Part 121 federal operating certificates from Ravn-operated airlines PenAir and Corvus — which allow scheduled service to rural hubs in the Aleutian Islands, Bristol Bay, and the Kenai Peninsula.
