COVID-19 Testing Information


The State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services is providing free community testing at the Alaska Marine Highway Terminal parking lot. Hours of operation are 10:30am-5:30 pm, Monday - Saturday and CLOSED Sunday. Those interested in a test will find the mobile testing trailer in Lane 7 of the AMHS parking lot at 3501 Tongass Avenue, Ketchikan. 

The State has contracted with Beacon Occupational Health and Safety Services, an Anchorage based provider, to conduct the testing. Due to nation-wide shortages, the free COVID-19 test provided by Beacon are no longer a 15 minute rapid test. Individuals receiving a COVID-19 test can expect to receive their results within 48-72 hours of being tested. 

For questions regarding Beacon’s testing, please call: 907-375-4381. 


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.

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 ). 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.
