Antigen test within 24 hrs b4 flying

The US State website has the info clearly laid out - maybe that’s a more reliable source than an online forum?

First hand information from a forum like this is definitely helpful. For e.g., the website says testing should be done one day before (or something like that) but a lot of people whose flights are at 2:00 AM are confused as to what is considered as one day before.
Also, there is significant confusion regarding the type of test. Most say antigen, but the air India counter in Bangalore actually asked the passenger before me in the counter to go get a rapid PCR.
Always helpful to get the perspective of people in forums who have real world travel experience to understand how these protocols are implemented.

Can one of y’all kind sirs/madams post a link to this magical website you speak of?

Join the SOS Global facebook group, lot of relevant information and real experiences.

1 day prior. Cdc is ok with rapid antigen but most airlines end up insisting on rt pcr test. If you can just get the rtpcr and save urself the hassle of convincing the checkin agent

It’s 1 day prior to your departure to US. Join the SOS global Indians group on Fb/meta. It’s got a ton of information. @mck1 I agree antigen works for most US carriers. But at times Air India, Middle East carriers have insisted. Like I said it’s subjective and one can spend time clarifying with the agent v/s just getting rtpcr if possible and not dealing with the hassle

We've had a few instances of possible COVID sick employees that returned with negative test results. Upper management is basically asking if there is something they can do to help control what employees are doing in their off time (ie. going to bars or other places with a lot of people). They even went as far as to mention something about a wedding that 3 of the employees are in together. Can an employer have ANY control over an employee's time off? It seems crazy to think that they think they can.

here's my prediction.

If Biden wins, the media will begin to message the following;

-The worst COVID risks and outcomes are to people with identifiable risk factors such as obesity and diabetes.

-Most other people who catch it will experience a bad flu.

-Many other people who catch it won't even know they have it.

-It's not commonly transmitted by touching objects and person to person transmittal is low risk except in close contact.

The media will then message that we should;
