Negative COVID-19 test no longer required to enter Alaska

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy says travelers will no longer be required to have a negative COVID-19 test when arriving in the state. The governor made the announcement Sunday when outlining plans for the state to transition into a recovery phase after the state’s emergency declaration expired. Dunleavy ordered his commissioners and state employees to continue following the policies that were in place under the declaration. However, officials will spend the next several weeks reviewing which policies are still needed. Alaska has had more than 54,000 total resident cases of the virus, and 280 Alaskans have died. The state, which has a population of about 728,000, has given 175,135 vaccine doses.
