State and Travel Industry Launch Safe Travels Initiative for Out of State Travelers Initiative provides latest travel information to improve traveler experience 
(Anchorage)—The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is partnering with the Alaska Department of Health & Social Services (DHSS) and the travel industry to launch “Safe Travels.”
“Safe Travels” promotes personal health-safety and increases awareness about Alaska’s COVID-19 health mandates and advisories affecting travel.
“There are relatively few routes of entry into Alaska, making our state essentially an island,” said DOT&PF Commissioner John MacKinnon. “Partnering with DHSS, and the travel industry to better communicate Alaska’s Travel Mandates is a strategic effort to reach travelers before they arrive and provide them the information they need to make their travel decisions.”
Travelers heading to Alaska by land, air, or sea are assured they are receiving the most accurate interstate travel information when they see Safe Travels. Safe Travels amplifies the information about Health Mandate 10 to improve the traveler experience. It includes information specific to:
·        Non-resident travel
·        Resident Travel
·        Critical Infrastructure
·        Traveling while in Alaska
On Aug. 11, 2020, modifications to Health Mandate 010 took effect. All travelers to Alaska are required to complete an online Travel Declaration and Self-Isolation Plan. Non-residents are strongly encouraged to complete a qualified pre-travel COVID-19 test to avoid a $250 testing fee upon arrival in Alaska.
For more Safe Travels information visit, www.AlaskaSafeTravels.com.
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities oversees 235 airports, 10 ferries serving 35 communities, more than 5,600 miles of highway and 776 public facilities throughout the state of Alaska. The mission of the department is to “Keep Alaska Moving through service and infrastructure.”

We Love Our Military

Each attendee receives a welcome bag which we hope to fill with small gifts, coupons and discounts to encourage military members and their families to venture into the community. 
 
Explore Fairbanks is seeking more items as we run low on bags.
