    Maybe it will mutate to a lower GI virus by then and she can avoid the nasal swab, but that said, . . . .

    The nasal swab was weird and cringey and uncomfortable, but wasn't painful or anything. Think of snorting the top of a super thin pipe cleaner up into your sinuses and then having someone swish it around and pull it out. Your eyes will water for sure and you have to blow your nose afterwards, but nothing more severe.

    And when I tested positive I paid for the test through a local clinic and was surprised when they had me do a spit-in-the-cup test. That was a little more time consuming to sit there and spit in the cup until I filled to the little line- probably the main reason they do the nasal swab for mass testing. Maybe you can request that one. It cost me like $130 out of pocket.

    I hope you have trip insurance. Talking to family they may be shutting things down again over there.

    We have a one-week timeshare at the Marriott Kauai Beach Club, reserved for mid-August. The current requirement calls for a negative result from a test taken no more than 72 hours before takeoff from the States. Given that results don't become available from the nearby testing centers for at least five days, this makes it impossible for us to go.

    May I suggest a broken bone or other self-induced injury that necessitates a trip to the ER? And then claim recent contact with a COVID positive patient? As long as you do it at a hospital that is big enough, they may do the testing in house. You could have results in a couple of hours. You may not be able to snorkel with a cast on, but hey, Hawaii!
    "...you pointy-headed autopsy nerd. Do you think it's possible for you to post without using words like "hilarious," "absurd," "canard," and "truther"? Your bare assertions do not make it so. Maybe your reasoning is too stunted and your vocabulary is too limited to go without these epithets."

    This is the type of outside-the-box thinking that draws me back to CS day after day.
