    Travel Insurance for Covid

    Hello!

    With the new rules of having to test negative to return to the U.S., I was wondering if anyone knows of any travel insurance that covers room and board for people who test positive, but are asymptomatic? All the travel insurance I looked into only covers medical expenses or hospitalization under a doctor's orders, but doesn't cover room and board if a test is positive but the traveler isn't sick.

    Thanks!

    If you are talking about while you are in Aruba.. test positive and are asymptomatic..... the required insurance that you purchased from the Aruba government will cover your isolation but I do not believe it covers food.

    If you are speaking of trip insurance that many purchase go to insure my trip.com or squaremouth.com for comparisons.

    Thank you Andrea! I have went those routes. They only provide insurance if you get physically sick and have to be hospitalized. But, it's good to know that the Aruba insurance already provides some coverage.

    Thanks!
