Traveling during Covid

We have bad wanderlust, bad! I’m having trouble focusing at work and home since I have worked all thru Covid and hard. I had to get away, so Orlando here we are! We are headed to San Juan, Puerto Rico , we like to be last minute.

But this is what we have learned with covid travel… so far early into our trip.

  1. To go to Puerto Rico and fly on some airlines you must have a negative Covid test within 72hours negative, or you cannot go!
  2. Getting a rapid Covid test requires some real work and investigation. We barely go it done.
  3. Spirit airlines does NOT social distance at all, there is NO separation between seating, zero. All seats were filled, 100% occupancy.
  4. The hotel websites might say breakfast and free shuttle, but Covid probably shut that down, do not expect any extras.
  5. Extras including cleaning your room with housekeeping daily, that is apparently not happening at any hotels. No beds made when you come back after a long day of just relaxing at the beach.
  6. In Puerto Rico, you must wear your mask ALL the time, even on the beach, even when walking down the street, even if no one is around, if the police pull up, they will make you mask it! Pretty much everyone does wear a mask everywhere.

  2. Hi Dave and Laura, These ‘rules’ are fascinating. The rules are likely different with different airlines and destinations. Thank you for sharing. It helps to be forewarned. Safe travels.

  4. Is it really worth travelling?

  5. Yeah, I guess it doesn’t make sense to have maids intermingling with dirty linens and multiple rooms. If they don’t get sick they could still be the transmission route.

    We’re still wearing masks everywhere in Los Angeles county except at home.

    1. Yeah, were fine with all the restrictions, we knew it would be harder to travel. But had to go, just had to get out

    1. Spirit was a nightmare, you pay for what you get. Cheap in this case = nightmare
