South Peninsula Hospital is working closely with the State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and numerous state and local agencies in our response to the rapidly-emerging outbreak of COVID-19.  Alaska has 191 confirmed cases, with  3 confirmed cases of residents from the southern Kenai Peninsula, including a resident from Anchor Point who was diagnosed and since passed away while out of state.    Visit the state’s case count website for daily updates, information and case counts.

CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings while in public. See simple ways to do this, and safe practices for putting on, taking off an laundering at home.
