    Other Travels Was Considering Bermuda

    I was considering going to Bermuda being that I cancelled my trip to Aruba. It's only a 2 hour flight from NY and they have their COVID cases under control no daily positive cases since they re-opened back in June or July. However, they have some very strict measures. You need to test 72 hours before your flight but they allow if you test within 7 days before your trip. You have to prove you tested negative with the nasal swap test to get on plane, they will test you anyway when you land at their airport and then you have to quarantine for 24 hours but results are usually available within 8 hours. Then if all is well you can enjoy the beach, island but on day 4 you have to go to a medical center and get tested again. If staying longer lets say 10 days you have to test on day 4 and day 8.

    I wanted to go for 5 to 6 days but day 1 I have to quarantine 24 hours and then day 4 have to go get tested again which is an hour cab ride from where I was planning on staying plus $50 cab fare each way. I respect their requirements and maybe that's why it's under control but it's too much money to spend on a trip that continues to be interrupted. God forbid you test positive and then its a 14 day quarantine.

    No thanks!

    Good Point they do have some bad weather coming their way this week and who knows it might also affect the week I was planning on going.

    Maybe Niagara Falls in Canada, anywhere! LOL
