I can move our flights out one day, but I don’t know if this will help, Monday testing instead of Tuesday? The move keeps the same itinerary.
    We are arriving in Aruba on 12/30 and had our Covid tests scheduled and conducted with Walgreens. Most of our Walgreen locations in Minnesota offer both a regular diagnostic lab test (PCR), where results are sent back within 72hrs, and a rapid diagnostic test (ID NOW), where results are sent back within 24hrs. Both tests are molecular and The ID NOW test is an approved test process by Aruba. Even with all the testing going on, we got our results (four tests) back from Walgreens in 8-9 hours. However note, with all the testing going on, you need to schedule your tests about a week in advance (earliest Walgreens allows) or run the risk of having no test times to choose from at a given location. Safe travels!

    Does anyone know how likely or unlikely it is that Aruba will close its borders? That happened to us 2 years ago. We missed our 20th consecutive trip because of covid. We plan to go in March.

    ignore the time............it is the days!

    test anytime on Sunday for a Tuesday departure.

    the test must be completed and results in within 4 hrs of departure

    Yes, this is there reply. I guess two days time doesn't mean 48 hours. Must be why I'm always early...or is that late

    Their reply...

    Please note that the testing window is 2 calendar days prior to your direct flight to Aruba, not necessarily exactly 48 hours.

    We have a few Walgreens locations that offer the Abbot ID NOW test. We'll just have to coordinate as needed.

    Gibt es eine Übersicht, wie viele der positiv getesteten Personen ohne Impfung waren? Und wie viele mit Impfung? Gibt es Altersunterschiede?

    For those who can drive to Manchester NH I used this facility today and have my green check mark ready to go. They say two hour turn around....it was less. It is a mobile unit set up at the Mall of NH. You can book ahead and I strongly recommend it. Prepay gave me a discount for the most expensive test.
