    Walt, I have read a lot of horror stories on Aruba Facebook pages about people that tested at Walgreens. Some people said that they had to retest at the airport because the results are supposed to have some sticker on it and their's didn't, and some said that it is supposed to indicate how the test was performed ( observed or administered by the staff), and some say that they were turned down because it didn't indicate that the test was a nasal test. Did your results say these things?

    Hi blakecreek. Do you live in Nags Head? I live in Richmond,VA but my screen name is Hatteras because I love the OBX. I'm also going to Aruba in June but haven't decided which place to use for testing. I wish that I was in Nags Head right now.

    Yep... moved there 3 years ago... was a cold spring and wanted to go to Aruba earlier... but we moved our Aruba trip to June to ensure vaccinations were complete (done), and hoping that entry/departure requirements might ease up (hasn't happened.. yet).

    I don't have Facebook, so I'm not subjected to such stories. I just printed out the lab report PDF that came in the email along with the green checkmark. The test we took was a nasal test, but not the PCR, it was the NAAT. We breezed right through the airport showing those two documents.

    I'm with you two! This Forum is my only dip in the social media pool! I'm afraid of sharks!
