The Anchorage Health Department says that a youth hockey tournament is where a cluster of COVID-19 cases has been identified.
Contact investigations indicate that the 2020 Termination Dust Invitational, held Oct. 2-4 at the Ben Boeke and Dempsey Anderson arenas, was attended by more than 300 players, coaches and fans, the city wrote.
Teams from Anchorage, Eagle River/Chugiak, Wasilla/Palmer, Kenai/Soldotna and Juneau participated in the tournament. Contact investigations indicate significant close contact in indoor spaces, including locker rooms, with inconsistent use of face coverings.
To avoid further spread of COVID-19, the Anchorage Health Department has advised all attendees without symptoms to quarantine at home for 14 days except to get tested. Additionally, AHD urges all attendees with COVID-19 symptoms to isolate from others at home for 10 days, except to get tested.
