Hi, I am curious what is involved in your travels during covid? I’ve seen comments about getting Covid tests. Is it different for flying and driving? What about your return trip?

Is of right now you can’t drive into the USA unless it is essential business. Flying is open to non-essential however need a negative pcr or antigen test 3 days before flight leaves to enter the USA.
On return we need a negative pcr or naat test (no antigen) test to board the plane within 72 hours of flight departure. The 72 hours is a sticking point as if your flight gets delayed you could be in trouble. If you are double vaxed upon return you may get randomly selected for another pcr test or you are just sent on your way with no quarantine. If you aren’t double vaxed when u land u will get a test upon landing, quarantine and have another test on day 8. Also need to have all your information filled out and proof (negative test, vaccination prof, etc) on the ArriveCAN app when u come back. Believe that is the jist of it, could of missed something for non-vaxed but haven’t paid too much attention to that since it doesn’t apply in my groups case.August 19, 2021 at 12:29 am #49707
DANG!!!! So potentially you could get a false positive test before you leave. Then potential non compliant people on the plane who end up getting duct taped to their seat. Man that is some stress. Then stress trying to get back. Hope you have a calm trip.August 19, 2021 at 8:47 am #49714adam petersonParticipant

Adam…true, best way to look at it. Hope you get some great courses this year!August 19, 2021 at 10:48 am #49721Ryan StratulateParticipant
Ya just roll with whatever life throws at you. At least in the way down we are coming in early so we have room to push flights back some. The way home is a little trickier, but I’ve got a few ideas in case we can’t get on a flight, but will cross that bridge if we get to it.
