    I was able to get ours for November with our health dept. But it took 5 days but is free. If we go through urgent care to order the rapid test we also have to pay a dr fee of $120 each. But we can get it within a few minutes. So our April trip is costing at least $350 for covid test both ways with the 72 hours. So now Im searching for a rapid test that doesn't require a dr visit.

    Oh geeze a Dr. fee is crazy! I’m in White Plains New York and a rapid antigen test one of our local walk in clinic cost $100... I think to enter back into the US a PCR test is needed? I’m not sure how much I have to pay for that when I’m in Negril. On the brighter side though airfare is significantly cheaper?

    DeeDee,

    An antigen test works getting back to the US. US$50 at the airport and in Negril.... we are making it easy.

    Thanks but we Fly out of Southbend. We used to drive to Ohare but with a park and fly or just the 2 hour drive. The extra cost is worth it.

    Here in Minnesota we got the rapid antigen test at our local Walgreens for free.

    Planning my trip for May... are the antigen test easy to get in town or should I wait to go to the airport before my flight back to the US? The price is still $50? All sounds so crazy to me I’ve recovered from Covid and I will be vaccinated by the time I arrive in May... with so many vaccinations being done I wonder if vaccination proof Will be required for travel???

    My husband and I were fully vaccinated when we came 2 weeks ago. Still had to be tested. I think it will eventually be waived. It might be an incentive to get more people vaccinated.
