August 11, 2020 / This week from The Signal

All the latest news and information from around Alaska.

But first… 

Last week in the newsletter, I shared a profile of Uncruise, the only company offering ship-based trips in Southeast Alaska during the pandemic.

Three days after that ship left the dock, I got a text from a friend: “Did you hear about Uncruise?!” 

My heart sunk. Because I knew what happened. 

After an abundance of precautions and preparations, the ship turned around when a passenger got a call that he tested positive for COVID-19 at the Juneau airport upon arrival.

I tell the whole story in the latest episode of Cruise Town
