    Good morning All! Haven't posted in a while, but have been keeping up with reading the forum & enjoying everyone's posts! I'm just venting, so please bear with me.... I'm hoping this testing-to-return requirement gets dropped soon. Been to Aruba 5x in the last 2yrs during covid, and did what we needed to protect ourselves. But for some reason I'm having anxiety over our upcoming trip in mid-June. Maybe b/c we're going for our FIRST-EVER 2wk trip and I'm stressing about the "possibility" of getting stuck there and having to take more time off from work, which will not make my employer very happy :-(

    Thanks for listening, and hoping to run into some of you around the island if you're there at the same time, just like Walt/Pam/Chris!

    A valid concern since it seems more people are getting COVID now with the eased restrictions and more contagious variant. For this reason they probably won’t drop the testing. I have a few family events I am concerned about attending - my husband and I have remained COVID free up until now. Good luck!.

    My wife and I have spent over $500 testing to leave Aruba in the last 14 months. For all of the added stress it added to our vacation time, would have gladly given that $500 to a charity and let them have the privilege of informing me I don't have covid. I have taken many domestic flights in that same time period - Funny how covid knows not to spread on those flights.( or at least nobody cares about it) Restrictions will be lifted shortly before the midterms - all political BS.

    ....and it's not like Aruba is some third world country. Let's face it, almost everyone flying into the states from Aruba is American!
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    from Mexico if traveling by air, yup need the negative test 1 day prior.

    From the CDC
    What You Need to Know


    • If you plan to travel internationally, you will need to get a COVID-19 viral test (regardless of vaccination status or citizenship) no more than 1 day before you travel by air into the United States. You must show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight.
    • If you recently recovered from COVID-19, you may instead travel with documentation of recovery from COVID-19 (i.e., your positive COVID-19 viral test result on a sample taken no more than 90 days before the flight’s departure from a foreign country and a letter from a licensed healthcare provider or a public health official stating that you were cleared to travel).
    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? SIDTM
