For travel to the USA, per the guidance of the CDC, testing must take place no more than 3 days before your flight to the US departs. The US is accepting both PCR and antigen tests. Make sure that you receive your results before your flight departs and have written or electronic documentation of your results to show the airline. Personal identifiers on your negative test results must match the personal information on your passport or other travel documents.

 

For travel to Canada, you must take the test within 72 hours of your scheduled departure time and you must retain evidence of your test results for the 14-day period that begins on the day you enter Canada. The test must be performed using one of two types of COVID-19 tests–either a molecular polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP). Antigen tests are not accepted.

All air passengers traveling to the USA and Canada, including those who have received one or both vaccination dosages, are required to provide a negative COVID-19 test result to board their flight.

For travel to the USA, the CDC requires that air passengers ages 2 and older arriving in the US have a paper or electronic copy of their test result for review by the airline before you board and for potential review by public health officials after you arrive in the US.

If you are arriving to the US via one or more connecting flights, your test must be done in the 3 days before the first flight in your itinerary, but only if the connecting flights were booked as a single passenger record with a final destination in the US and each connection (layover) is no longer than 24 hours long. If your connecting flight to the US was booked separately or a connection in your itinerary lasts longer than 24 hours, you will need to get tested within the 3 days before your flight that arrives in the US.
If your flight from Turks and Caicos is delayed before departure, you will need to get re-tested if the delay causes your test to fall outside of the 3-day pre-departure testing period requirement.

  5. The person and their immediate contacts would be advised to self-isolate until contacted by the Public Health Team. 
  6. The person will be quarantined for 14 days in their place of residence or until the Ministry of Health authorizes them to leave the country by medivac if medically required (insurance covers these costs).
