COVID-19 / Coronavirus Resources

Last Updated: 6/19/2020

Thank you for visiting our COVID-19 information page. As always, please continue to adhere to CDC guidelines regarding social distancing and consistent hand washing. As good neighbors we must be vigilant and work together to combat and defeat this disease. 

How to get tested for COVID-19:

Testing is becoming more widely available across the state. Please use the testing site locator  to find a testing site near you.  Because people are most infectious to others in the beginning of their illness, it is recommended to be tested as soon as you have any symptoms of COVID-19, no matter how mild. 

There are two FDA-approved home-collection COVID-19 tests:
1. Pixel system from LabCorp
2. Everlywell COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit

Note: if you have symptoms, please do not walk in to visit a doctor’s office, clinic or hospital emergency room without calling ahead.  This is to protect the health of health care staff and other patients. More COVID-19 testing information is available from the Alaska health department.
