New Travel Rules requiring a COVID-19 test prior to your return home

September 13

Information for US travelers and antigen testing
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires a negative COVID-19 test for all passengers flying into the United States. (This applies even if their final destination is another country but they are on a connecting flight, which first enters the United States.)

COVID-19 tests are available at Grand Residences
To help you comply with this new travel ruling and for your convenience, Grand Residences, through a certified independent laboratory, is making onsite viral antigen nasal swab tests available at no cost. This policy is valid until January 1, 2022.

It is important to note that free testing is for owners, members and guests staying at Grand Residences, is one-time only and available to those who have no symptoms.  Results are available in 24 hours.  Grand Residences is not responsible for the results.

Reservations are required for antigen testing, please contact the Front Desk or Concierge upon arrival at the resort to make your appointment.

Onsite testing is only available for guests who have no symptoms.  If you have symptoms, you must contact the Front Desk or the Medical Service to make arrangements for in-room testing.

Countries requiring PCR testing
Countries such as Canada and the UK now require all inbound travelers to show documentation of a negative laboratory test result to the airline prior to boarding their flight. The test must be performed using a COVID-19 molecular polymerase chain reaction test (PCR test) with results dated within 72 hours of their scheduled departure.

If your country requires a PCR test, this is also available at Grand Residences through a certified independent laboratory, for a fee of US$110 per person. Results are delivered in 52 hours.

Reservations are required for PCR testing, please contact the Front desk or Concierge upon arrival at the resort to make your appointment.
