Outbreak Health Order 08

Alaska has issued new Health Orders to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Beginning 11/21, the following rules apply when traveling (or returning) to communities off the Road System or Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS):

  • Travelers infected with COVID-19 must not travel until cleared from isolation by a medical professional.
  • Travelers who have been on the Road System or AMHS for more than 72 hours must test within 72 hours of travel and should not travel until negative results are received. If travel cannot be delayed until test results are available, travelers must follow strict social distancing until they receive negative results.
  • Travelers who have been on the Road System or AMHS for 72 hours or fewer may return without testing before travel, but should test 5 days after arrival and follow strict social distancing until negative results are received, or follow strict social distancing for 14 days if no test is taken.

“Road System” is defined as any community connected by a road to the Seward, Parks, Klondike, Richardson, Sterling, Glenn, Haines, or Top of the World Highways.
