June 4, 2020 by Austin McDaniel I can’t get a test result within 72 hours of departure. What are my options? Getting a PCR test within 72 hours prior to departure and showing that negative result is the fastest and safest way to ensure your ability to explore Alaska right away. If your test results aren’t in before you depart, you can quarantine at arrival until the results arrive. Once you provide the results to the state, your quarantine is over. The State of Alaska will accept results from tests taken up to five days prior to departure, but you will be required to take a second test when you arrive and to minimize your interactions until you receive the results (you will not be under quarantine). If you can’t get a test at all before you depart, you have two options: you may quarantine for 14 days, or you may be able to test upon arrival and quarantine, at your own expense, until your results come back showing you are negative. After that result, you must minimize interactions until a second test also comes back negative (between 7-14 days after arrival).
