Anyone been to Madrid lately? Where did you get a COVID test to reenter the US?

In Madrid the easiest thing to do is ask your hotel - they will either schedule for someone to do it at your room (pricier) or will recommend you a place to go to, usually without an appointment (€40-60). Coming back to the US you’ll only need antigen, so results should be ready in ~1hr. If you’re looking for a specific place, I usually go to Clinica Betanzos, they open early and close late, never had to wait a single minute. It’s €60 and you get results in 20min. It’s not near the centre though…

I made the mistake of showing up without a test. Had to take one at the airport and missed my flight. Either get one prior or show up to the airport really early. Sorry, can’t help as to where to get the test because I did it at the airport but the line was 3 hours long

The easiest thing is to schedule it at the airport before your flight leaves. The lines are crazy even with appointments so make sure you make an appointment and allow some extra time (I’d say an hour extra). The results are emailed to you in 20 mins. The ones at the pharmacies are not accepted for travel. I just went through this mess two weeks ago. Safe travels!!

I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.
