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.
