I know no tourists, but maybe residents should be tested on arrival too.

The latest positive person was tested on arrival.
It would certainly make sense that anyone coming in would be tested or show a current negative.

Tw more new cases: 1 resident and one tourist both came from Miami. I previous case is no longer positive. I am glad Aruba is now releasing more information about the cases.

the reason that "positive from Miami"
1. the positive tourist actually had the Miami flight as a connecting flight. To Aruba from X airport to Mia airport to Aruba airport. So did not have a Negative test to board the originating flight.

2. the other person is an aruba resident who also flew to Aruba by way of an additional airport.....(Dominican Republic). DR to MIA to AUA.

Both of these folks tested positive on arrival and are now in isolation.

I have no further info.

Looks like Aruba's safety net is doing as intended. Imagine if it wasn't in place. Let's hope that the individuals followed quarantine protocol and didn't pass it on to others.

Well, if I hadn't just cancelled this morning, this probably would have sealed the deal. This is what I was afraid would start happening. Hoping against hope it's a fluke.

It would be interesting to find out from which state(s) the tourists came. I doubt that it is one of the "hot states, " since those passengers were all tested 72 hours before departure. Upon arrival they wouldn't have been required to be tested again. Perhaps (just perhaps) Aruba might​ start requiring everyone to be tested 72 hours before departure. :confused:

Does anyone know the answer to this? We are flying to Aruba from NJ on July 19. We followed all the guidelines and uploaded negative PCR test results to the ED site but upon completion, the ED card indicates that a test will be administered upon arrive. (and charged me accordingly) My understanding was that if a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure was uploaded prior to 12 hours before departure, the test upon arrival would not be necessary. Is it possible that will be determined upon arrival?

Welcome to the forum. As Andrea said log into the ED card site 12 hours prior to departure and things should clear up.

Requiring everyone to be tested before departure will mean that many people simply cannot travel. Here in the UK we have no way to get tested so we have to be tested on arrival. I would rather the authorities didn't consider a blanket rule change and simply tighten up on those departure airports which are the source of the issues. There also needs to be action taken should people break the quarantine upon arrival.

The government has created a new chart format.
I find that it makes good sense as it separates tourists from residents.

From Evelyn Wever-Croes "Aruba received an average of 10 thousand tourists since July 1st, 2020. A total of 9 tested positive for COVID-19 which means that 9.991 tourists tested negative and invested in our economy while enjoying the island. Aruba is heading in the right direction as long as everyone follows the rules and regulations set by the government, in order to avoid the virus from spreading out. Our community is well known for their discipline and friendliness and this is the key to Aruba's success.

How does this account for the kids that don’t require a test? Are they in the 10,000 counted as Negative?

The stats are still good and I’m glad the system is working overall!

@ a Zoom a few weeks ago, I was told that kids who are not tested are not counted as negative. I am wondering if the age will be lowered once schools open and kids become more exposed or infected? I absolutely believe that Aruba is doing a very good job at getting everyone processed as painless as possible, prevention, and monitoring.

I forgot about the school thing too! In my area, kids generally go back after Labor Day. I understand kids can be resilient but I worry about the youngins! Lol

Andrea; as always thank you for all do for us warriors
Florida lost a child 9 yrs old to covid recently; mother (single parent only child) took her to ED
for high temp; they diagnose her with a UTI; a few days later wasn't able to breathe;
sadly she passed away way too young; hospital did NOT do any covid test on her either.

Aruba is doing a great job; they had less cases total than we had in one day.

Same with Robert's school; they usually start first week of August; they don't think they will pre screen each child/teacher every day;
if a child gets ill they will go to a confined area; then call their parents.. Just don't get it

Andrea J.

it would be under ACTIVE
those are the folks in ISOLATION and have tested positive.

re: Quarantine
those that test in Aruba are in quarantine til their negative report comes back.
those numbers would be pointless as their quarantine is only a few hours.
if positive, they are then ISOLATED

Thanks for the reply. I understand that the active cases are in quarantine, but the number in quarantine should be larger than that. For example, when the idiotic tourist violated quarantine, his/her partner, who was negative, would be listed in quarantine as well. They used to provide that number.

those that are waiting for test results are QUARANTINE

those that accompany the positives are in Quarantine.

there have been 9 (non resident) folks that have been released from isolation due to recovery from the virus (negative tests)

Aruba Coronavirus update 8/3/20 8:17pm:


The Aruba government just held a press conference to announce that there are five newly infected residents and all are local transmissions. They are not yet sure how these people contacted the virus and they are trying to find that out and do contact tracing.


As a result of this news, brand new restrictions involving proper social distancing will be put in place effective immediately.


The government is urging everyone to use face masks at all times when social distancing is not possible and at supermarkets.


Restaurants, bars, and night clubs will now have a maximum of four people at each table with all tables 1.5 meters apart. No more dancing. No more standing or sitting at bars. Only at tables.


There will be no more gatherings of more than four people in the streets. At work places social distancing will be mandated and face shields and facemasks when that cannot happen.


Churches and funerals will go back to old protocols. No more than 25 people at funerals.


Casinos will now have even more stricter protocols.


All indoor sports and contact sports are canceled. Gyms will continue to remain open but they will also have stricter protocols.
