    My neighbor with his house on the Kenai told me last week it's currently a 14 day quarantine period once he arrives in Alaska from Oregon before he can travel about. Any ideas on when that might be relaxed or eliminated? Thanks

    The mandate for out of state quarantine is to expire 6/2, but will be looked at weekly and maybe shortened or extended depending on trends.

    Travel quarantine lifts 6/5 with a negative covid test within 72 hrs of departure or upon arrival to AK, which may take some time.

    I heard Canada closed the boarder to all travel to AK except for freight. Anyone know any details on this?

    The “Alaska Loophole.”
    The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has confirmed that healthy individuals who are non-symptomatic of COVID-19 are allowed to travel through Canada for “non-discretionary purposes,” such as returning home to Alaska.
    Individuals seeking to transit through Canada to Alaska for discretionary or optional purposes are not admitted, and subsequently directed back to the US...

    If you're travelling through Yukon
    You're able to transit through Yukon so long as you do so in 24 hours. If you're in transit through Yukon, you'll need to provide confirmation that you do not have any symptoms consistent with COVID-19.

    Traveling to Alaska
    Alaska has removed the quarantine requirement for travelers who can show proof of a negative pre-travel molecular-based COVID-19 test result. Travelers who can show proof of a negative test result taken within 72 hours before departure will not have to quarantine. Travelers who can show proof of a negative test result taken within 5 days of departure will not have to quarantine, but will be retested at the airport.
    Alaska's COVID-19 cases are increasing so this may change....

    I seen in the ADN that there is only 5 ports of entry across the boarder from lower 48 now because of people abusing the system. US people caught recreational camping and not traveling through to AK. Big fines. Just made it harder for us that need to go back up for personal/business reasons. Flipping morons. Major documentation needed now for a reason to travel through. They log you now thru your passport and stamped card hanging from your rear view mirror. They are tracking you now.
