Alaska health officials say all residents in a small community who submitted to coronavirus testing have shown negative results, although not everyone agreed to testing.

The results come less than a month after the village’s first case emerged.

KYUK-AM reported the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp. found there were no new cases of the virus in the tests conducted in Napaskiak.

A Napaskiak resident tested positive for COVID-19 on June 15, while a second person tested positive soon after.

The corporation conducted additional tests from June 26 to July 1 and announced Monday that all of those test results were negative.
