Unalaska's largest fish processing plant reopened Monday after a COVID-19 outbreak forced it to shut down for almost a month. 

UniSea closed its doors Jan. 5 after a handful of workers tested positive for the virus, following a New Year's gathering in company housing.

Unalaska's classrooms will close Tuesday as the district moves to distance learning.

That's after city officials confirmed two new COVID-19 cases from community spread Monday and said there's "potential widespread exposure" to the virus in the community.

On Friday, Unalaskans joined the high school swim team in a community swim meet. At the event, eight community members competed against high schoolers.
