How do you travel in piece with all these covid requirements in place still? Constantly worried I’ll get stranded in another country while traveling.

Hopefully the nonsense will be over soon. AA’s ceo just blasted the US government and Germany dropped their testing requirements yesterday. The US is looking pretty silly.

With that said, I’ve been abroad around 10 times sense the testing mandate was put in place. The test is always nerve wrecking but I think the risk is worth the reward. As others have said, make sure you have a contingency plan if you end up getting stuck.

Go to usembassy.gov. they have all the information you could need on any country. Your embassy will always have your back when you're traveling abroad. It's their job.

That will not happen. We have embassies. But just use Google and your best friend, the CDC!

I did get stranded but it wasn’t Covid related. It can always happen when traveling internationally

Fly to Canada or Mexico and cross by land if you test positive. Take steps to make sure you aren’t infecting others or violating laws. Bring your laptop if you can work remotely.

US just stopped the negative covid test to get back!! International travel just for a lot less stressful

Just received an offer letter from a tech company based in CA. Only a “background investigation and reference checks” are listed as the contingent portion of the offer, nothing about testing. Does anyone know if they are required to explicitly say whether or not they drug test in an offer letter? Genuinely curious especially with Covid right now and the last place I want to be at is a clinic.
