According to the CDC, viral tests (those that detect SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid or antigens) are valid to enter the U.S. The new order 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. Canadian restrictions require a negative PCR result before boarding their flight back to Canada. That means travelers should be able to take either a PCR or rapid antigen test, as long as written documentation of test results (paper or electronic copy) can be provided to the airline. Hedonism II is offering complimentary FDA-approved antigen (rapid) tests AND PCR tests to paying guests on site at the resort. Guests may arrange the testing appointment upon arrival at the resort.
“We want to let our valued guests know that there is no need to cancel a reservation due to this new CDC order, as we are working to ensure that everyone can meet this government requirement in anticipation of their return home in a seamless and timely fashion. We want everyone to enjoy their stay at Hedonism II without any added stress or concern. We’ll take care of the logistics so our guests can focus on enjoying their time with us,” stated Dermot De Loughry, General Manager.
If a guest’s test results are positive, Hedonism II will provide complimentary quarantine accommodations at the resort for the mandatory wait period of 14 days. In the event the guest health deteriorates further the Ministry of Health may insist that the guest(s) be transferred to an on-island medical facility – until a doctor certifies clearance for travel with a negative test result.
These complimentary tests are available for paying guests traveling through August 31 , 2021. Travel agent rates and comp stays do not apply. Policies are subject to be reviewed and amended accordingly and updates will be communicated in a timely manner.
Testing charges starting on September 1, 2021.
