Unvaccinated travelers encouraged – not required – to take free COVID-19 test when arriving in Juneau

May 4, 2021 – News

Travelers from outside Alaska are no longer required to arrive with a negative COVID-19 test result or test upon arrival into Juneau. Instead, the City and Borough of Juneau is following the State of Alaska Health Advisories when it comes to travel testing guidance. Here’s what that means:

  • The State of Alaska does not require COVID-19 testing for travelers to enter the state.
  • Unvaccinated travelers: The State of Alaska and CBJ recommend unvaccinated travelers from outside Alaska test for COVID-19 prior to travel, or take advantage of the free and optional COVID-19 testing at the Juneau Airport. Social distancing is recommended until test results are available. A second test is also recommended, but optional, five to 14 days after arrival.
  • Vaccinated travelers: Fully-vaccinated travelers are not advised to test for COVID-19 or self-quarantine. Individuals are fully vaccinated two weeks after the receipt of one dose of a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or the second dose in a two-dose series.

In addition, beginning June 1, all travelers to Juneau will be eligible to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine at the Juneau Airport through the State of Alaska.

As a reminder, masks are required inside the Juneau International Airport, per CBJ ordinance and federal requirement.
