COVID-19

PRE TRIP SCREENING FOR OVERNIGHT & MULTI DAY TRIPS

  • We are asking all clients to be vaccinated for Covid-19. 

  • Vaccinated clients:

    • We require results of a negative over-the-counter rapid antigen test taken the morning of your trip start date and a second test to bring with for mid-trip testing. ADAC will not provide these tests. 

    • We recommend taking a PCR test prior to travel.

  • Non-vaccinated clients:

    • We require that you provide results of a negative PCR test taken in Alaska, within 72 hours of trip start date and time of 8 a.m.  

    • Please consult our ADAC Covid Testing Resource Guide for help arranging your testing. Please note, this guide may not be up to date as many testing sites are being closed Summer 2022. 

  • All clients, regardless of vaccination status:  

    • Must sign the ADAC Covid Statement of Understanding.

    • Must have medical and trip cancellation insurance.

    • The morning of your trip, take a rapid antigen test and text/email the results to your guide prior to pickup (their number will be provided after booking).

  • Pre Trip Recommendations

    • ADAC cannot guarantee the availability of testing or tests in the city of Fairbanks. We recommend you book testing/purchase & pack tests prior to travel to Alaska. 

    • We recommend full coverage travel insurance (medical+trip cancellation+cancel for any reason etc.). We require basic medical & trip cancellation insurance. 

    • We ask that you begin to limit your interactions with crowded areas such as indoor dining, concerts, etc. starting 5 days prior to your trip with us. 

    • We reccomend you take a PCR test in your home community prior to travel.

    • When in Fairbanks, please avoid crowded areas such as indoor dining and Chena Hot Springs prior to your ADAC adventure. You can enjoy the hot spring post-trip. Please mask when running errands. 

    • Here is the link to the State of Alaska’s current COVID 19 protocols: https://covid19.alaska.gov/travelers​. We encourage you to check this link, in addition to your own state or country's guidelines for the most up to date information regarding travel. At this time there are no travel restrictions in Alaska.

  • Day Tours​

    • No proof of vaccination or testing required. We ask you mask while indoors. Social distancing protocols will be observed as practicality allows. ​

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. 

Best,

COVID F.A.Q.S

Question: I am unvaccinated and tested positive for Covid well before this trip and might still test positive on PCR tests for weeks to come. What do I do in lieu of a negative PCR test? 

Answer: At this time, ADAC will accept:

  1. Proof of a positive Covid test within three months of trip start date AND

  2. A negative rapid antigen test taken the morning of our trip departure.

If you the date you tested positive for Covid is longer than three months ago at the time of your trip start date , we require that you adhere to our Regular Covid-19 Protocols and take a PCR test. 

Question: What happens if I test positive right before the trip?

Answer: We will cancel your trip due to safety reasons. If you incur cancellation due to having COVID-19 or “flu-like symptoms” within 14 days of the trip start, we will hold 100% of monies paid by you in connection to the booking as credit if your cancellation is supported by a medical certificate. See our Terms & Conditions for full details on trip credit.
