COVID-19 Update July 2021

In light of the CDC recommendation loosening restrictions related to COVID-19, JYS is very pleased to re-open our facilities and welcome our community. However, certain restrictions remain in place.


Our community services building continues to welcome community members by appointment.


Our residential campus is pleased to announce the re-opening of family visiting for our young people receiving residential treatment.


Family members residing in Juneau may visit young people in JYS’ residential programs on Wednesdays, 7 – 8 p.m. and Sundays, 2 – 4 p.m. Families residing outside of Juneau who are unable to visit during regular visiting times must schedule visitation through the program supervisor or their designee. All family visits must be pre-arranged at least one week in advance with the program supervisor, even if the family is visiting during regular (Wednesday and/or Sunday hours). There are no “drop-in” hours for visitation.


The number of people allowed to visit a youth is no more than two (2) per visit.


If the young person is NOT vaccinated, the visitor must show proof of at least one of the following:

1. Being fully vaccinated

2. A negative COVID-19 PCR o
