    ACE May 2021 Trip

    3 more days for my flight to paradise so I decided to get a head start with my trip report.

    This morning I started packing and I started my ED card half way thru. At 8:00am I will be logging on with Vault via Zoom to commence my Covid Test. At 9am I will be dropping off my sample to the UPS store and hope for a negative result and on time to upload to ED card by Friday. I've been fully vaccinated for a few weeks now so there should be no issues. Looking forward to some sun, fun and get together with friends.

    How does this VAULT test work? You take the nose swab yourself, handle the sample and send it out yourself? Hope that all works out well! I'm sure the results will be negative but hope you get the confirmed documentation back in time to complete your ED online (12 hours before your flight).
    Have a safe trip and enjoy.

    The Vault test is saliva base. You get a kit which you cannot open until you are logged on via Zoom with a Zoom Supervisor someone from the lab. They ask you to open the kit and to start spitting into tube. Once tube is full of saliva you insert this blue liquid, shake and seal it with the cap, put it on the prepaid UPS bag and drop off at UPS store. I did this same test for my trip in December and had no issues. I received email confirmation the next day around 11am confirming they received the sample and at 730pm they gave me the results. So basically I had the results on a Thursday night to upload and get my green check mark for my Saturday flight. Other members have done the test as well several times without any issues. It's a very convenient test and they send you a receipt and instructions on how to submit claim to your insurance which I never bothered to do. I just charged it to my HSA account which I forgot to do this time and charged it to my Jet Blue Card so maybe I will probably submit the claim this time as well as the test in Aruba and see if I get reimbursed. It doesn't hurt to try...
