I am happy to say that my 2020 scheduled and private photo tours took place without incident and took into account all local and State of Alaska COVID-19 mandates and restrictions. Our policy is to continue with the current mandates and use the procedures for what has worked in the past. See below for links to the current information regarding State of Alaska restrictions & information on Jeff Schultz Photography Inc. COVID-19 mitigation plan.

State of Alaska Traveler Information

Please take the time to carefully read all of the current State of Alaska travel instructions on this official State of Alaska traveler information website. They have step-by-step instructions. It is likely things may change the closer we get to your travel time. Please review it regularly. I will contact all clients signed up for a photo tour if there are significant changes to State of Alaska mandates, but ultimately it is your responsibility to have the most current info and be compliant to it: https://covid19.alaska.gov/travelers/

NOTE: Current Alaska mandates require a non-resident to have a qualifying molecular Covid-19 test done (with negative results) 72 hours before boarding your plane to visit Alaska. Some have found it difficult to get their test results back in this amount of time. We have found, and my clients have been successfully using, a testing lab which sends a home collection kit directly to you. You would then send it back to the lab, via FED EX, and they guarantee your results in 24 hours, in time to meet the State of Alaska 72-hour mandate. The lab is The Covid Consultants and here is the link to the appropriate test: https://thecovidconsultants.com/#pcr

Alaska still requires molecular-based tests for visitors and residents.
While an antigen test meets CDC requirements, Alaska requires a molecular based testand all travelers arriving from international or domestic destinations remain subject to State of Alaska testing requirements outlined in Health Order No. 6 (International and Interstate Travel), including the requirement to obtain a molecular-based test 72 hours before departure and upload negative result into the Alaska Travel Portal.

Jeff Schultz Photography Mitigation Plan

Below is a link to the currently used Jeff Schultz Photography Covid-19 mitigation plan for your review. It includes step-by-step information for my tour clients to use to properly gain entry to Alaska by following the appropriate mandates. This will be updated as local, State and Federal mandates change. My goal is to keep us all safe, healthy and enjoy a great Alaska photo tour experience:
