    My only thoughts on this is the Sunday travel. I've been told that being tested on a Friday could be a problem with labs being closed on Sat. Thoughts?? I'm sure I'm not the only one who fly's on a Sunday.

    Go to a care center that has an in house lab. We did that because of all the Q's on timing of response.
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    I scheduled Sunday travel for next September. Last September we traveled on a Saturday but I like Sunday better. Since we used the Walgreens Abbot ID Now test, results came back in 2 hours at that time. When I booked 6 weeks ago I was not worried about turnaround time but new variant is causing delays. You can call Walgreens to find out their current turnaround time. It was a great experience if you can use them.

    We did arrive on Jan. 3rd. Staying at divi beach (Divi Aruba All inklusive).
    It was very heavy with al this Clovis test documents, verformt flight, from a very high risk country (24h testing, = 1 day) and a few mailings with Aruba officials department which were very nice helpful an did answer our questions by mail very fast. Flight from Amsterdam with KLM was very good. A lot of residents were in the plane (we see them at the passport control). Also much tourists from Netherlands, UK etc.. I did not hear more coughing at this flight as as on earlier flight I had in Europe last months.
    The Covid rules at the hotel are really perfekt. Staff is great. Staying as much as we can outside. And of course every time wearing masks when we are inside a room, even it is the restrooms.
    The hotel ist just booked 58%, because of a lot cancellations form US and Canadian tourists the last day.
    We know we have all to be very careful but thanking good to see this paradise Aruba! Three times vaccinated I hope will help. But we watch extremely for the kids.
    I will give more informations next… Stay all health
