TESTING "POSITIVE" - COVID TEST- 3 DAYS PRIOR TO DEPRATURE

by kathybrown, Tuesday, October 19, 2021, 05:45 (94 days ago)

OK- HERE'S MY QUESTION, WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DO THE TEST-THREE DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR DEPARTURE AND IT COMES BACK POSITIVE- THEN WHAT? WHERE DO YOU GO? OR DO YOU HAVE TO FIND YOUR OWN PLACE TO QUARENTINE BEFORE YOU CAN TEST AGAIN. WE HAVE A GROUP OF 8 WOMEN COMING IN DECEMBER AND ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE WHAT IF'S? THE MAJORITY ARE VACCINATED BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING- YOU CAN STILL GET IT. IS THERE A PLACE THAT THEY PUT YOU UP TO BE QUARENTINED OR WHAT AND IF SO- WHAT IS THE COST? WHAT DO YOU DO AND HOW MANY DAYS BEFORE YOU CAN TEST AGAIN. SO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY ANSWERS YOU CAN PROVIDE.

Actually I believe all of your questions have been discussed here before if you'll peruse the previous discussions on this topic. If you get Covid-19 it's up to you to isolate and take care of yourself until you test negative and can travel.

I hope you've been following my daily Covid-19 reports. They go back well over a year. Look for posts by me with "ZIH" somewhere in the subject. There almost isn't any active Covid-19 in the community at the moment.

IMO, the responsibility lies on YOU. Obviously YOUR returning country is requiring the (-) test and the airlines are carrying out the task of screening. It's up to you to have a back-up plan, not THEY.
Sounds harsh but tough times. The hospital I work in (Montana) is packed with covid, morale is low. Thats why I'm bring my wife down to PARADISE :vivamexico:
Our oxygen towers are running low so they had to switch the ICU and COVID unit so covid could access more O2. People I their 20's are passing.
Many of my fellow Americans need to put aside their hate, privilege, and "rights" to get vaccinated.
Enough. 1.5 weeks till sun and sand.

I agree with you.
We Canadians are being forewarned by the government to avoid non essential travel. If i opt to take the risk the entire experience and whatever consequences are my responsibility. ditto for Americans...i don’t know what needs to be said or done to get more people vaccinated but i think the vaccine passport will provide some people with incentive. certainly hope so.
Please enjoy your much deserved holiday!
Warmest Regards,

You say the majority of your party will be vaccinated. Not everyone?

This is just me but I would not travel if I were not vaccinated. And I am vaccinated and would not consider traveling with someone unvaccinated. I’d really be interested in your thinking about the travel, vaccination and the risk of traveling without vaccinations.

Totally agree. It's a terrible risk to travel with the unvaxxed (or as they're called in my neighborhood, "The Uncleans";).

I strongly urge everyone in your party to get vaccinated. Traveling unvaccinated poses too many risks for others, if not also for the unvaccinated.

I agree with what others have said. Unvaccinated people should NOT travel.

I have had this question in the past. I think what you are asking is, what, if any, support or protocol is available for those travelers who test positive shortly before traveling?. Supposedly a positive test means that you have to find lodging for the period of the quarantine,but can a hotel turn you away for having a positive test? I know airlines will. If someone has had this experience, it would be helpful if you could walk us through what happened and what you had to do. Where do those who test positive end up quarantining.

Do not travel to Zihuatanejo if you aren't fully vaccinated, PLEASE We visitors and locals who are vaccinated greatly appreciate your consideration and responsibility.

Last year our hotel told us that we could stay at the hotel if quarantined, but it is going to cost you the going rate. Last year the hotel was nearly empty. I don't know what the policy is now. We found the hotel was very accommodating in helping us get tested, etc. They want us there!
