State of Alaska DHSS Guidelines If You Are Feeling Sick or Have Been Exposed to COVID-19

The State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services guidance applies to the general public. But if you live or work in a high-risk setting such as a correctional institution, health care facility, an assisted living facility or a fish-processing plant, talk to someone at your facility for guidance.

If you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 and if you are not fully vaccinated, quarantine right away to help prevent further spread to others.

A close contact is someone who was within 6 feet of an infectious person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more when a person was infectious. This definition applies regardless of whether the infected person or close contacts were wearing masks.
