Air passengers will also be required to confirm in the form of an attestation that the information they present is true.

    sounds a little tight, time frame wise, for the unvaccinated. not a great way to spend your last day.

    Thank goodness for the super fast test time on the happy island of Aruba. Tourists typically get their test results from the walk-in clinics within 4-8 hrs of the test, so the happy tourists of Aruba will be fine, per either of these requirements.

    They are really pushing the unvaccinated to get vaccinated or stay home. There are consequences for action and non actions. Hopefully, this is a step in the direction for the vaccinated not to tested.

    So just got a message from SW about the updates to travelling back to US.
    Looks like if parent is vaccinated the 2-17 yr old child has to have proof of Neg. test within 72 hours.
    If the parent is not vaccinated the child also has to have their Neg. test last 24 hrs. same as parent.
    Check on that please if it is correct.

    Then they should get their shots before they go. It only takes a few minutes from your day to get tested for the return.

    may not be a few minutes anymore for the unvaccinated. what was a choice of up to 3 days to get tested is now condensed into one day.
