We are scheduled to leave on 3.11.21. My wife and I had COVID in December and she has had two vaccines and I one. PCR tested today and she was negative while I was positive 78 days after initial illness. No symptoms. Ran back down and did antigen testing tonight which is negative. EHAS forms completed and submitted and waiting for a response. Without antigen testing we would be SOL. The PCR testing is so sensitive that it can pick up noninfectious virus particles for weeks but 78 days? I suppose it could be a false positive. I’ll feel better when we get approval emails.

Hope you are clear to leave tomorrow. It’s beautiful here. We feel better mentally being in sun and warmth after staying home for over a year.

Thanks for sharing sknau. Did your get your test done at a clinic, pharmacy, other? Were the results emailed to you with a pdf attachment that can be used with the EHAS form? Cost?

I'm in Iowa too.

I’m a pediatrician in Cedar Rapids and can get tests done when I need them. Sorry but I guess it’s one of the benefits of working 40 years and having decades of 80-100 hour weeks. We are packed and take off in six hours. Hoping I ca sleep.
