COVID Safe suggestions for everyone:
- Social distance (stay six feet away from people outside your home)
- Wear a mask when in public
- Wash your hands frequently
- Disinfect surfaces regularly
- Before going to a group gathering consider the risk
- Monitor yourself for signs of illness
At this time masking is not mandated or required in public spaces. Private businesses may still request that a mask or face covering be worn upon entry and employers may require masks or face coverings to be worn as part of their workforce protection plans.
Currently both medical facilities and Alaska Airlines require a mask or face covering to be worn in their facilities.
If you become sick or experience symptoms, you should mask and immediately begin to strict socially distance. Call a local medical provider to schedule a COVID 19 test.
If someone in your household or on your vessel becomes COVID positive, that person must immediately isolate from the rest of the household or the entire household/crew must immediately self-quarantine with the sick individual. If the household/crew are considered close contacts additional instructions may be given by contact tracing. All isolation and quarantine instructions should followed to completion. Failure to do so may put others at risk.
