Updated Alaska COVID Travel Guidelines

Still another change to Alaska’s requirement for non-Resident travel to the state was posted on the State’s site on August 5, 2020. 
Non-Residents arriving in Alaska after August 10th must either:

  1. Have gotten a COVID-19 test within 72 hours before departure to Alaska and upload negative test results into the Alaska Travel Portal, or
  2. If the test was done within 72 hours before departure but the results are not yet available, upload proof of the test into the Alaska Travel Portal and quarantine until getting a negative result, or
  3. If no pre-testing is done, get a test in Alaska ($250) and quarantine until receiving a negative test result.

A link to upload testing information will be available soon.

For more information, please visit the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services website.

Remember that under quarantine, you cannot have contact with anyone other than medical providers in cases of medical necessity.
Non-residents arriving before August 11, should follow Alaska’s current COVID-19 testing requirements,  but options 1 and 2 above are also good for the present.
