MISSION REPORT–FAR NORTH COMMAND–01/15/2021
Hello world. As you may have already heard, Domestic airlines in the USA will require a Covid test done within three days of boarding a flight back to the USA. This affects travelers to Cozumel or Cancun. What I have been reading is that the airlines will not allow you to board before you are able to show that you have been tested NEGATIVE.
The good news is that Cozumel has three hospitals that can do the test and the results are received within 24 hours. There is a cost for the test. I am hearing it runs around $50 USD. The International Hospital located just down the street from our dive shop can do these tests. We have already had one client who has done the test even before the airlines have required it.
This new airline rule is going into effect January 26, 2021. Jeanie has more information that she will give you when you make your reservations. As Cozumel’s economy depends on tourism, here is some good news. Some hotels will now have the tests available. I have very little information on this, but here is the latest update that I can give.
