We have friends who are going to St. Maarten on the Dutch side who will have a rental car. Does anyone know what restaurants or attractions will be open on the Dutch side August 2–12? They have done their testing, filed their results online, and will bring a print copy.

Thank you for any help.

Can you find out what type of test they took that did not have the Emergency Use Authorization printed on the results?

Hope they have proper test report and proof of medical insurance too. Or what ever Gov desides to implement between now and then.

Doug--as Lesley said, most Dutch side businesses are open. Please do post here once they arrive safely, as things seem to be such a crap shoot these days.

FYI - The University of Wisconsin Health clinic started a Covid testing program yesterday out side their building having people spit into a test tube and had the results in about three hours. This will be great if this can be done on a mass scale.

Wow, sounds good to me--we were fans of Taco Macho and heard that has closed. I hope they do well and we'll definitely give it a try if we get a chance to travel in October.

Yes Taco Macho got completely broken down and I have heard that his Taco is very good. It's him and his girlfriend that's a qualified Chef.

We spoke to our friends today. They had the correct test and got the results in 2 hours. Submitted their results online and received an email back from the government almost instantly.

The took their test at a local urgent care chain which was fully paid for by government or insurance. No cost.

Their flight is tomorrow so everything is going good so far.

Update:

Nowhere Special is offering free food to those in need. They could use donations as well.
