Wrangell tells all unvaccinated travelers to get tested on arrival

The Wrangell Borough has returned to requiring COVID-19 testing of unvaccinated travelers — locals and visitors — who arrive from out of state. The requirement had expired in June.

The assembly approved the immediate reinstatement of testing at its July 27 meeting. The requirement will remain in place through Sept. 30.

“Identifying positive cases through testing upon arrival from outside the state is still one of the most effective ways to keep the community safe from the virus being brought into town,” Borough Manager Lisa Von Bargen wrote in her recommendation to the assembly last week.
