Adak COVID-19 Information

The City of Adak has published some information, relying on the State of Alaska public information page regarding the virus. Following on this page are some of the specific Adak items. We will update this page to include new information as it becomes available.

Air Ambulance (Medivac) evacuation insurance is highly recommended and is requested prior to travel to Adak. With limited health services on island, emergency medical evacuation from Adak (into Anchorage) can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Recommended providers of air ambulance services that commonly serve Adak are LifeMed Alaska and Guardian Flight.

All travelers are required to submit a travel registration form to the City. Submit travel registrations a minimum of two days prior to travel (to ensure complete review). We do not encourage submission of travel registrations more than 14 days in advance as the “communities traveled” information needs to be up to date.

Effective 04/21/2021 travelers who have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days prior to the date of travel, and who provide proof of vaccination to the city, are exempt from the testing requirement. Non-vaccinated individuals and those who do not wish to provide proof of vaccination must take a COVID-19 test with 24 hours of arrival in to Adak.  Travelers must make arrangements with the Adak Medical Clinic prior to travel.  The city bears no responsibility for any costs the Clinic charges for testing. No option for exemption to restrictions due to vaccination status exist.

TSA Directive 1542-21-01 requires face masks when on airport property (including commercial aircraft, airport terminal, airport parking lot and airport property). Face mask requirements will otherwise be up to each business/organization that is open to the public. Failure to comply with business/organization policies is a violation of Municipal Ordinance 2021-122.
