    OBSOLETE COVID THREAD Covid positive

    There are guidelines for isolation upon testing positive for COVID-19 that differ slightly depending on location. The CDC says to isolate for 10 days from onset of the disease (first symptoms or date of positive test if no symptoms) but at least in Portugal they recommend only 7 days if no...

    OBSOLETE COVID THREAD Covid positive

    We thought about flying into Canada and driving home, but Canada randomly tests travelers arriving at airports. Moreover, if you fly to Canada with symptoms of COVID or worse yet while you are supposed to be isolating, you are in violation of the Canadian Quarantine Act.

    OBSOLETE COVID THREAD Covid positive

    In my case, I was also vaccinated and boosted. I am traveling with my sister-in-law who in fact was double boosted. Nonetheless we both tested positive at the airport. My wife tested negative and was able to return home. I had a minor sore throat for one day and later a little cough, but...

    OBSOLETE COVID THREAD Covid positive

    I agree that the requirements seem uncomfortably nebulous. For what it's worth, I found this online in a document from the CDC for airlines screening passengers: SIGNED LETTER: Must also have a signed letter stating the passenger is cleared for travel. • From a licensed healthcare provider or...

    OBSOLETE COVID THREAD Covid positive

    I feel your pain. I tested positive when I got to the airport and was expecting to fly back to the US. Now 6 days later my self tests are getting fainter and "less positive" so I'm hopeful that I'll have a negative test result soon and can get an official test so that I can fly back home...

    At this point we no longer have a reservation for the taxi. We received an email from them last week that stated: Hello. We do not have shared taxi. At the taxi stands you will find free taxis to make the transfer or you can request one by calling +34948232300. Greetings. So we're just...

    Water Filter?

    Looks like the concensus is clear - I'll leave the water filter at home. Thanks to all for the prompt replies!

    Water Filter?

    I'm leaving for SJPP in two days and think that I'm well prepared after planning for several months. However I haven't been able to decide whether or not to bring a water filter. I'm hoping for some last minute insights from others who have done the CF before. Normally when I backpack in the...

    Taxi Share - Pamplona to SJPP April 18, 2022

    I don't think that I can change our reservation - only cancel it. But I have heard that the taxi company does try to match pilgrims to SJPP so I don't expect you'll have any trouble, especially given that you're still 3 weeks away from your arrival in Pamplona. I mentioned that we were on the...

    Taxi Share - Pamplona to SJPP April 18, 2022

    We fly out of a little regional airport - Akron/Canton and then connect in Charlotte. Ours is listed as an American Airlines flight, AA 748, but I suspect it is also sold as a British Air flight.

    Taxi Share - Pamplona to SJPP April 18, 2022

    I have reserved a taxi for 3:00 pm (15:00) on April 18. During the reservation process I chose the option to share the ride with other pilgrims if possible. I suspect that if you reserve a taxi using the same method that they'll match us up in the same taxi. Sounds like we're on the same...

    Taxi Share - Pamplona to SJPP April 18, 2022

    I'll be traveling with my wife and her sister, arriving in Pamplona at the train station at about 2:45 pm on April 18. We're planning to reserve a taxi to SJPP from there. The taxi can carry as many as 8 people for the same fare (€135). Anyone care to join us?
