COVID-19 is spread primarily from person to person when people breathe, speak, sneeze or cough – so keeping your distance is one of the best ways to stay safe. That’s why you must maintain strict social distancing for 5 days after you arrive in Alaska, regardless of test results.
While social distancing, avoid enclosed spaces and crowds, limit interactions to 5 minutes, and stay 6 feet from others. Social distancing is a great reason to explore some of Alaska’s wide-open spaces!
What is strict social distancing?
- Strict social distancing is allowed after you have one negative test result from a test taken within 72 hours of departure or on arrival into Alaska.
- You may be in an outdoor public place, but you must remain six feet away from anyone not in your immediate household, and you must wear a face covering. You may arrange curbside shopping or have food delivery.
- You cannot enter restaurants, bars, gyms, community centers, sporting facilities i.e., ice rinks, gymnasiums, and sports domes), office buildings, and school or daycare facilities. Do not participate in any group activities, including sporting events and practices, weddings, funerals, or other gatherings.
- This 14-day window can be shortened by receiving a negative result from an optional second molecular-based test for SARS-Co V2 taken between five and 14 days after arrival into Alaska.
