International and Interstate Travel:
Per State of Alaska Health Mandate 10 on International and Interstate Travel, all travelers into Alaska are required to self-quarantine for 14-days and monitor for illness. This Mandate is in effect until further notice. After your arrival, you will need to fill out the mandatory State of Alaska Travel Declaration form online and identify your quarantine location (your home or lodging in Alaska). Those under quarantine cannot visit any public spaces and cannot allow visitors. If you are returning to a home where others live, other household members will not be required to quarantine with you but are expected to keep at least six feet away at all times.
