Am I hearing correctly that from Nov 1 on, if you have both vax, no Covid test is required to return to the US/USVI?

I deleted my post because I think both of the stories are incorrect.

As I understand it, nothing has changed for returning, fully vaccinated, US citizens. You must provide proof of vaccination and a negative test result taking within 3 days of travel. The CDC rules (specific to AIR TRAVEL).

Nothing has changed for fully vaccinated US citizens, but apparently for UNVACCINATED US citizens, they now have to test one day before returning and after they return.

This is the likely source of the confusion. The governor mentions 2-3 weeks and that was a couple of weeks ago but no firm dates. It does quote Governor Bryan.

Carol posted a USA Today link on the SXM portal. That article says nothing has changed for the fully vaccinated. The change is for the unvaccinated as she stated above. That is for USA travelers reentering the US.

HERE

is the link to that story. Most of the story is about foreign nationals entering the US, but the part about unvaccinated US citizens is in there.

"Starting Nov. 8, unvaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents will need to take a test one day before departure and test again upon arrival in the U.S. "

Here is another summary of the updated Nov travel requirements.

Update Regarding US COVID-19 Travel Restrictions
Tuesday, October 19, 2021
As we previously posted last month, the United States is rescinding and replacing the geographic COVID-19 travel bans with new proof of vaccination requirements for all international travelers. These new requirements will pertain to those entering the U.S. via air, sea or across the land border with Canada or Mexico. As reported by numerous news outlets, the White House recently announced the new air travel requirements will take effect on November 8, 2021.

What we know
While official proclamations and regulations are still forthcoming, this is what we know:

The current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC requirement for all travelers to show proof of a negative COVID test taken within 3 days of travel will remain in place for all fully vaccinated travelers.

Foreign nationals traveling to the United States will be required to present proof of full COVID vaccination prior to boarding the in-bound flight. The CDC defines fully vaccinated as 2 weeks after the last required dose.

CDC announced that the acceptable vaccines will include those authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and those approved by the World Health Organization (WHO). The current comprehensive list includes:

Moderna

Johnson & Johnson (Janssen)

Pfizer-BioNTech

Oxford-AstraZeneca/Covishield

Sinopharm

Sinovac

The CDC has also confirmed that a mixture of the above vaccines will meet the definition of “fully vaccinated” per the new travel requirements provided the “second dose in a two dose heterologous series must have been received no earlier than 17 days (21 days with a 4 day grace period) after the first dose.”
