Covid 19 Updates Returning to the US & Canada

COVID-19 Requirements to Enter the United States

December 2, 2021 CDC Update:

Negative COVID-19 Test or Documentation of Recovery is required for all air passengers, two years of age or older, flying internationally to the United States. 

  • 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).

 

You are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks (14 days) after your dose of an accepted single-dose COVID-19 vaccine; or
  • 2 weeks (14 days) after your second dose of an accepted 2-dose series COVID-19 vaccine; or
  • 2 weeks (14 days) after you received the full series of an active (not placebo) COVID-19 vaccine in the U.S.-based AstraZeneca or Novavax COVID-19 vaccine trials; or
  • 2 weeks (14 days) after you received 2 doses of any “mix-and-match” combination of accepted COVID-19 vaccines administered at least 17 days apart.*

If you don’t meet these requirements, you are NOT fully vaccinated.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I schedule my test?
Our guests are offered priority testing at 8:00 am daily.  Upon arrival at Infinity Bay, you will be able to schedule your pre-departure test with a staff member at the Front Desk.

What happens if I test positive?
The CDC states that you should self-isolate and delay travel if symptoms develop or a pre-departure test result is positive until you have recovered from COVID-19. Airlines must refuse to board anyone who does not provide a negative test result for COVID-19 or Documentation of Recovery.

We are prepared to assist guests with accommodations (that we have on reserve) should the need arise.

What would be the cost if I have to quarantine, and does that include meals?
We’re extending a special nightly rate that includes three meals with delivery in the event you need to quarantine.

The standard quarantine requirement is 5-12 days for asymptomatic or mild cases.

How would the doctors monitor us?
When in quarantine at Infinity Bay, one of the doctors can visit your room for an evaluation (depending on the severity of your symptoms.) If symptoms worsen and frequent monitoring becomes necessary hospitalization would be advised.
