Apr 13, 2022 · COVID-19 Community Levels and Community Case Rates. Updated April 13, 2022. The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) uses COVID-19 Community Case Rates as a tool to complement the COVID-19 Community Levels tool from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Both tools can help individuals, organizations, and communities make decisions about prevention measures.
The alert levels are based on per capita incidence of COVID-19 in the past 7 days among Alaska residents, and are similar to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's COVID-19 community transmission indicator (CDC COVID Data Tracker). DHSS calculates the number of reported cases of COVID-19 over the past 7 days per 100,000 residents in each borough or census area, using 2020 population estimates from the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
Follow new cases found each day and the number of cases and deaths in Alaska. The county-level tracker makes it easy to follow COVID-19 cases on a granular level, as does the ability to break down infections per 100,000 people. This county visualization is unique to USAFacts and will be updated with the most recent data as frequently as possible.
