DHSS Head Discusses Travel Policy For Residents And Nonresidents

first_imgNonresidents must submit documentation of a COVID-19 test upon arrival, and will also be able to do so via an online hub: “All nonresidents must arrive with a negative COVID PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to departure, or proof of a pending test result from a test taken within 72 hours prior to departure. This new strategy will allow us to focus resources on travel through the state. Really, it’s the test – 72 hours before departure – and then upload a negative test result into what’s going to be called the Alaska Travel Portal. If tested 72 hours prior to departure and awaiting results, travelers will need to upload proof of a test-taken into the travel portal and then quarantine while waiting for a result.” Workforce travel plans that have been established remain in-place for critical infrastructure workers, and those respective companies should be aware of all travel policies. The new policy changes go into effect on August 11. He also noted that in-airport testing is available to both Alaskans and nonresidents. Nonresidents, however, must pay: “If a nonresident does arrive without any pre-test, testing is available at the airports, and we will be charging a fee for those tests. The traveler will be required to quarantine while waiting on results.”center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Adam Crum spoke on Tuesday during a press conference to offer details about changes to Alaska’s travel policy. Commissioner Crum also outlined a travel plan for Alaska residents: “Alaska residents can return to the state of Alaska and testing remains available at no-cost to residents. The 14 day quarantine is still available to Alaska residents as well, who just don’t want to have the test, who just want to go home. Alaska residents traveling back home to communities in rural Alaska will now have the option of testing at these airport sites, just so they can prevent bringing the virus into these small communities. It should be noted that no test is going to be required for children ages ten years and younger.”last_img read more

Portuguese newspaper O Jogo reports today that the player is really going to stay at the Eagles after turning down the chance to move to the Premier League.With Samaris’ contract with Benfica expiring at the end of the season, Newcastle had reportedly offered €300k to have the player on a loan deal, giving him a chance of signing a two-year contract in the summer. Then the Portuguese side would keep a percentage of a future transfer.However, O Jogo says that both Samaris and Benfica have rejected the deal. The midfielder doesn’t want to move away from the Lisbon side, and the Eagles didn’t like the amount offered.Embed from Getty ImagesNow Benfica have reportedly offered a new contract to Samaris, and they are ready to start discussing the new terms for him to stay with the Eagles.Although the player has only four appearances this season, he’s happy that the change of managers has been reversing his situation at the club, as he’s having more chances lately.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

Euro 2016 joy for Hungary as they end 30-year wait

first_imgBy Zoltan FazekasHungary’s 30-year wait to play on the major championship stage will end in France next year after their 2-1 victory over Norway ensured that one of football’s most storied nations qualified for the Euro 2016 finals.The triumph, which sealed their 3-1 victory on aggregate in front of an ecstatic crowd in the Groupama Arena, guaranteed Hungary’s first appearance in any championship finals since the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.“I have to congratulate my team, the association president Sandor Csanyi, and also Pal Dardai, who I took over from and he left this team for me,” said Hungary’s German coach Bernd Storck who took charge in July.“The players’ approach was fantastic during those two games, they fought well and deserved to qualify to France.”The Hungarians built on their first-leg win in Oslo when Tamas Priskin curled in a delightful 14th-minute opener and Markus Henriksen’s own goal on 83 minutes made the tie safe.Henriksen atoned with a late goal but it was scant consolation for the Norwegians as the home side celebrated qualifying for the European Championship finals for the first time since 1972.The toast of Budapest was Hungary’s 39-year-old Gabor Kiraly, who made a series of superb saves over the two legs.Ferencvaros’s home ground erupted almost like never before when Priskin curled in a fabulous strike from 16 metres after a quick counter-attack to put Hungary ahead.Kiraly had to make a fine save from Haitam Aleesami’s low shot in the 27th minute after a flowing passing move from the visitors and Norway came even closer when Even Hovland’s header from a corner hit the post in the 45th minute.Balazs Dzsudzsak’s deflected shot struck the crossbar in the 58th minute after a rare counter-attack by the hosts, who dropped deeper to defend their overall two-goal advantage.Kiraly made another excellent save in the 76th minute when he parried Marcus Pedersen’s close-range shot before the tie was effectively sealed seven minutes from time as Dzsudzsak’s corner was bundled under pressure into his own net by Henriksen.The AZ Alkmaar man then pulled one back for Norway in the 87th minute but it was too little, too late.“Congratulations to Hungary, they were better than us over the two legs,” said Norway coach Per-Mathias Hogmo.“I am deeply disappointed with our performance, we could not score in Oslo, that was a big setback. All in all, we came up short.”last_img read more
