Maintain your distance

Keeping physically distant – at least six feet – from non-household members is one of the most important ways to prevent COVID-19. As Alaska eases restrictions and reopens our economy, we know people will want to socialize more too. Please do so safely. To protect your health and the health of others, it’s safest to limit your trips outside your home, keep your social circles small and avoid large gatherings.

What you need to know

If you do go out β€” you need to adhere to these guidelines:

  • When in public spaces, make every effort to stay 6 feet away from others*

  • Wear a cloth face covering when in areas with non-household members

  • Obey all instructions at businesses requiring limited entry and a 6-foot boundary

  • After going out, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds

  • Launder your cloth face covering

  • Clean and disinfect any surfaces that have been in contact with non-household members

*Note: Social distancing is not required for members of the same household

Special guidelines for public gatherings (including union or political meetings, outdoor gatherings and religious services) are available.
