    10 day COVID test question

    We took our COVID tests today 11/13/20. We leave for Jamaica 11/23/20. Is this going to be ok? Is it ten days or eleven days?? We were afraid it will take days to get the results. Any advice is so much appreciated.

    This is the same website you will use to get your travel authorizations 5 days before travel

    From the link Greg posted above, I do not think your timing would work:

    "The date of the sample collection must be less than 10 days from the travel date to Jamaica. Example: For a travel date of October 20, the earliest the test sample may be collected is October 11. Use the Test Date Calculator."

    No. You'll need another test. Here's the calculator:

    We have decided to test 9 days out rather than 10. I am concerned something could cause a flight delay and our test would no longer be valid when we arrive. Iím not concerned about traveling because we will do everything possible to stay safe but getting this test is totally stressing me out!! May have to extend the trip just to get over it!!

    The first day we can take our test is the day after thanksgiving. Of course where we get our test done is closed until Monday. A little added stress never hurt anyone. LOL
