    Should we just move before November and establish residency in another state (joking of course)
    I was finally feeling good about our trip then I saw this today and it made me so sad to see our state on the list, but honestly not surprised. I talked myself down by saying we still have 2 months for things to change. And if not, we test at a couple places and hope for the best.

    I wonder if the they have told the Arubans if they don't start following guidelines, the restrictions will be harsher and have greater fines and jail time.

    People who aren’t following guidelines really don’t care. Hard to believe but nothing surprises me these days...

    For PA resident—Is the new change for Pennsylvania mean that if I get a Molecular PCR test before I leave Pennsylvania 72 hours before my flight then I don’t need to retest when I land in Aruba.Am I understanding this correctly

    yes
    actually the test needs to be loaded in to the ED card site approx 12 hrs prior to fight time, so you really want the test results back in 60 hrs.

    if your test is negative then you will not have to test in Aruba.
    if your test is something other than the PCR test, Aruba will allow you to board the plane and then re test in Aruba (PCR)...then quarantine at your resort til the results come back ...anywhere 4 to 12 hrs.
