  • Returning from Travel


    KGBSD Start Strong Plan: Travel

    • Do NOT need to quarantine;
    • Do NOT need to test as long as they remain asymptomatic.

    Unvaccinated Individuals:

    • Test for COVID upon returning to Ketchikan;
    • Return to school after receiving a negative test result;
    • Taking a second COVID test 5-7 days after travel is strongly recommended.
