UnCruise Says Wilderness Adventurer Did Not Have COVID-19 On Board After All | KTOO
The passenger who tested positive for coronavirus aboard the only cruise ship to sail in Alaska during the pandemic does not have COVID-19, according to the ship’s operator.
Last week the Wilderness Adventurer, operated by Uncruise, turned around halfway through its first trip of the season after a passenger got a call saying he had tested positive for COVID-19 at the Juneau airport.
It’s unclear at this time how the passenger received the positive test and why he was later cleared. The test was processed at a state lab, and according to Mila Cosgrove, who heads up Juneau’s emergency operation, a false positive from the type of test conducted at the airport is “highly unlikely.”
