Coronavirus cases are proliferating at prisons around the state. At Alaska's largest prison, Goose Creek, in Point MacKenzie, there’s an active outbreak of 204 cases. At the Fairbanks Correctional Center, there have been over 150 total cases.

But not at Wildwood Correctional Center. The Kenai facility, which is currently holding 415 inmates, has not seen any cases of the virus yet among its general population, said Sarah Gallagher, a spokesperson for the Department of Corrections.
