Apologies if someone has already posted about this, I couldn’t find anything.
I’m hoping someone has recent experience with the Maingate testing facility. The guidelines are confusing to me, as it indicates it’s open to “residents”. The website is very vague about how it works. Can anyone go get a test, or do you have to be a Florida resident? And are they doing the PCR tests or the rapid tests? Can we Uber there or do we need to rent a car? Can we make an appointment or is it walk in only?
Coming from NY (maybe, a big maybe at this point but we’ve already rescheduled twice) and Cuomo changed the rules yet again. (!) Right now, we have to get tested 72 hours prior to returning to NY, then quarantine at home for 3 days and on the 4th day get tested again. I don’t believe we need the PCR test to get back into NY, but DS13 school does require the PCR test before he can go back. (He is only in person two days a week so he will have to attend remotely for a couple days, but it’s not tragic since half the class is remote on any given day anyway.) It’s unnecessarily complicated, but I’m trying to figure out when we need to do all these things and what kind of test is acceptable.
Our trip is Thursday to Tuesday, so I think we need to get tested at the Maingate on Sunday, and again at home the following Saturday. Almost not worth the hassle. Almost!
