The Ketchikan Emergency Operations Center announced new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ketchikan Tuesday, bringing the total number of cases in Ketchikan to nine. The spread is concerning to community members and officials there, considering the first case was announced last week. “We have three grocery stores, a post office, a community recreation center and you can imagine that everyone in the community goes to those locations several times a week, that’s my concern,” said Carol Dooley, owner of Alaska Sport Fishing Adventures, LLC. On top of worry over the spread, Dooley adds to her concerns being an owner of a fishing charter company catering to cruise ship passengers.
