As Covid-19 case numbers continue to rise, public health officials are finding the transmission of the coronavirus is occurring in all parts of the community. 
“And when you're looking at the numbers and they exponentially pop up for a seven day period, last week compared to this week, that's because it is so widespread,” Alaska Public Health Nurse Lorne Carrol said. “So anywhere where the virus can transmit from one person to the next, COVID-19 is spreading from one host to the next.”
