Report: At Least 50 Have Gotten Covid In Last Three Weeks 

Minimum Of 18 Locals Got Covid In Past Week 


As the new Delta variant of Covid rampages across the world in late July, 2021, Covid cases are also on the rise in the Copper Valley. This follows a long period of relative quiet.

The new form of the disease is being described by doctors as almost entirely different from the Covid that killed 600,000 Americans in 2020.

It's much easier to catch; easier than getting a cold. And it's very dangerous. People who have the disease can infect 8 or 9 others.


The Copper River Native Association wrote on July 30th:

Good day everyone

Updated regional cases in coordination with Mount Sanford Tribal Consortium (MSTC) and Cross Road Health Ministries.

We have approximately 18 additional confirmed cases this week. 10 of these were tested at CRNA. MSTC is expecting additional positives later today for a few pending tests.

In total for the last 3 weeks we have likely had more than 50 confirmed cases throughout our region. It’s hard to say how many more have gone untested, but there are certainly more cases existing than we know about.

CRNA continues to offer testing and vaccination to meet the region’s needs. Call 822-5241 to schedule an appointment. 

We advise anyone that believes they have been exposed or experiencing symptoms to stay at home and contact their provider for further recommendations.
IF YOU NEED HELP 

If you feel endangered at any time, call Cross Road at 822-3203 day or night, and your call will go to a provider's phone or to the medical center.

If you are having trouble breathing, have chest pains, can't walk, or if someone is unconscious, call 911. 

Cross Road Contact: 822-3203
