Beginning on Aug. 11, visitors arriving in Alaska must present the negative results of a Covid-19 test completed within 72 hours of arrival.
The policy will supersede current entry requirements, which offer options for pretrip testing or a combination of quarantine time and testing upon arrival in the state. Although testing will no longer be available for nonresidents, residents can still be tested when arriving at the airport.
Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy announced the change during a briefing July 28.
The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services website shares the state's latest testing requirements, along with documentation forms, information on testing sites, general health guidance and updated requirements for individuals visiting Alaska.
