If you arrive in Alaska without a 72-hour negative test result, self-quarantine until negative results are obtained. If you arrive by air without getting a 72-hour test, get tested at the airport ($250) and self-quarantine until negative test results are obtained.

After arriving in Alaska and having proof of negative test results (either from pre-travel or from after-arrival testing), practice social distancing until you leave Alaska or for up to 14 days, or until you get a second negative test result that was taken between 7 to 14 days after your arrival. Practicing Social Distancing includes wearing a mask and staying 6-feet from anyone not in your household when you are in outdoor public spaces; and not entering restaurants, bars, gyms, community centers, sporting facilities, office buildings, school or daycare facilities. Do not participate in Group activities.
