State of Alaska Health Mandates
Starting October 16, travelers must meet one of the following:
- Obtain molecular-based test 72 hours before departure and upload negative result into the Alaska Travel Portal.
- If tested 72 hours before departure and awaiting results, travelers will need to upload proof of test taken into the Alaska Travel Portal and quarantine at personal expense while waiting.
- If a non-resident arrives without a pre-test, testing is available for $250 per test. The traveler will be required to quarantine at personal expense while waiting on results.
- A second test taken between 5 and 14 days after arrival is recommended, but not required.
Testing will remain available at no cost to Alaska residents, who will also have an option for a 14-day quarantine. Alaska residents traveling back to home communities in rural Alaska will now have the option of testing at the airport sites to prevent bringing the virus into our small communities.
Health Mandate 18 has been updated has been updated to permit travel to communities located off the road system, however communities may enact local travel restrictions of their own. This revision was made to provide flexibility to local communities off the road system to make their own decisions about when to open to travelers.
Masks and Face Coverings: The following communities have mask guidelines for indoor, public spaces: Anchorage, Valdez, Sitka, Cordova, Juneau
