IFA Adds Additional Safety Protocol

Hollis, Alaska – The IFA has implemented CDC and DHSS precautions to reduce the likelihood of COVID-19 transmission on its vessels and at its terminals. In an effort to continue to keep our passengers & crews safe, beginning July 15th, 2020 the Inter-Island Ferry Authority (IFA) will require passengers to complete a Passenger Wellness Screening Form before allowed to board our vessel.

The form has a series of questions that outline the IFA’s current conditions of service:

  • Questions 1-5 address if you are Covid-19 positive or have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19; you will not be allowed to travel under these circumstances.
  • Questions 6 & 7 identify passengers that either have results pending for a COVID-19 test or are in transit to a quarantine location; passengers with these circumstances will be allowed to travel but will be required to wear face covering, practice social distancing and limit social interaction.

The IFA’s top priority is to keep customers, employees and the community safe, and we appreciate your cooperation in adhering to our protocols.
