Canceling my trip, CDC testing requirement last straw

by Ellisnet, Tuesday, January 12, 2021, 20:46 (99 days ago)

Just my luck I buy my plane ticket to Zihuatanejo 2 days ago for a one week trip in February and today the CDC decides it will require Covid testing for all coming to USA from foreign countries. Tempted to wait and see if Alaska Air comes up with a process for their passengers, but it seems the best thing to do is scrap the trip. Too many bad scenarios: can't locate testing, can't get test result in timely manner, yet another change in US travel policy, and of course the worst one of getting sick and being denied return via ANY method to my own country for medical treatment. FYI- really not interested in anybody's feedback about how I shouldn't have planned a trip at all. I have been very thoughtful and risk-averse about this, and nothing was decided lightly.

Along that line, we live here, and aren't going back.

However, as soon as the news was announced, I checked the ACLU website, I'd think they will have the scoop. Nothing yet, probably too fresh.

I booked a quick trip Feb 12-16 and lucky for me my return trip just got canceled. Rebooked for May 14-22, hopefully things will get figured out by then. My wife gets her first shot this Friday and I get my second on the 20th. Hopefully they will make an exception for those that have been vaccinated. So funny how it’s ok to travel where Covid is peaking but you need to test if you go someplace that is doing much better than where you live. Seems that Mexico should be requiring a test not the U.S.

Yes, Alaska currently has an unreliable schedule. A reliable FAA source (college roommate) shared to avoid Feb travel due to anticipated change in US Covid Policy next week as tests results will be the norm for return travel. This leaves the airlines in limbo and unable to confirm return ($) on limited travelers.

I receive the Pfeizer vaccine this Friday and also curious how this plays with return to US test requirements. Any confirmation on cost and turnaround time for recognized test in Zihua?

The NY Times article says:
"The new policy requires all air passengers, regardless of vaccination status, to get a test for current infection within the three days before their flight to the United States departs, and to provide written documentation of their test results or proof of having recovered from Covid-19."

We have to understand that the vaccination doesn’t keep you from contracting or spreading the virus. It is used to prevent you from becoming extremely ill from COVID-19.

That is the big unknown. We need a lot more data and hopefully with more people vaccinated and more time, we will be more informed. Depending on the vaccine taken, we do not know yet how long before you are considered "safe" after the second injection. Apparently some of the test subjects had issues after the first injection. Then again people react differently.

As was announced recently in response to Canadian requirements, testing IS available here in a timely manner, and the testing locations ARE easy to locate. If you really want to come to Zihuatanejo, I see no obstacle in anything you've mentioned. Worst case scenario is you get Covid-19 and have to wait a few extra days in paradise for a positive test result, if it doesn't kill you of course.

We don't return to the US until April so have plenty of time to plan, but I can only assume that those tourists who come for one or two weeks will cancel if it seems like a hassle.

She’s not my governor, more is the pity. I envy you such a strong, thinking , pro active governor. Mine is lockstep with 45 and has taken no steps to protect Missourians from COVID. And I am fairly startled at the complaints about the testing. Yes, it adds a hassle, but it makes travel safer. So, is that their complaint? They want people to be able to travel on an airplane if they have COVID. Uh, that makes zero sense.

My guess would be that with in 2 weeks (maybe sooner) you will see the Governors of states that have high tourism implement a testing program for tourists (Maybe Anyone) bound for the USA and Canada. They can not afford to have people canceling reservations or not booking. If they were smart they would hire a PR company to get it all over the internet. "COME TO MEXICO and STAY 10 DAYS OR LONGER AND A CANADA/USA APPROVED COVID TEST IS ON US"

That is just a guess on my part. Or that is what I would try and do. $100+ for a test in return for $2000+ in local revenue. B-)

"Your plan covers COVID tests outside of the United States. Your coverage is as follows. Out-of-network COVID-19 test: COVID-19 tests are covered at 100%, deductible does not apply."

I can only assume that other insurance providers, if not all, will cover the cost as well. Hope this helps.

The new CDC guidelines requires all air passengers arriving to the US, from a foreign country, to get tested, no more than 3-days, before their flight departs and to provide proof of the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight. This Order will go into effect on January 26, 2021. Testing must be performed using a viral test ( NAAT or Antigen )

The CDC press release states that in order to board a plane for the US you need a Viral test. The CDC further defines both the PCR/LAMP and the Antigen test as Viral tests. The Antigen test or Rapid test is available in Zihua at Laboratorio Saturno Corazon and Laboratorio Clinica Integral. Results from the Rapid test are usually available in 20-30 minutes.
More information is available on the respective Lab's Facebook pages.
