The Airport Traveler Testing Site: 

Drive-Up Testing On Berth 3 Offers Testing For:

*The COVID-19 traveler testing site located at the Ketchikan International Airport is operated by Capstone Clinic, an Alaskan company. Hours of operation will be generally 8 am to 8 pm daily inside the airport terminal building on the first floor. There will be ample staff to meet each arriving flight.
  • People who have symptoms of COVID-19.
  • People who have had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone with confirmed COVID-19.
*Results for traveler tests are expected to be provided within a 48-72 hour turnaround time. The Covid Secure App will continue to be used for screening, testing, and results (through the Alaska Traveler Portal at https://www.alaska.covidsecureapp.com ). Positive and negative test results will be sent via the Covid Secure App with an email to the traveler. Public Health will follow up with a call to the positive person and will proceed with contact tracing.
  • People who have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19 because they cannot socially distance as needed, such as travel,  attending large social or mass gatherings, or being in crowded indoor settings.
  • People who have been asked or referred to get testing by their healthcare provider or state health department.
*Vouchers for follow-up traveler tests can be used at the airport or at any participating clinic, including the Berth 3 drive-up testing clinic.  
If you do get tested or take an at-home test because you have COVID-19 symptoms or have had a close contact with someone who has it, you should self-quarantine at home pending test results and follow the advice of your healthcare provider or a public health professional.
