BREAKING NEWS: USVI Tourism Tells Visitors Antibody Tests Won’t Be Accepted
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — The U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism just put out an important COVID-19-related message for visitors to the territory on Twitter minutes ago.
“As of August 13, results from COVID-19 antibody tests are no longer acceptable for entry or submission to the USVITravel Screening Portal,” Tourism said on social media. “Make sure that you’re up to date on the #USVI’s latest #travel restrictions and entry requirements, at http://usviupdate.com .”
People returning to the territory from the U.S. mainland who are not vaccinated have told the Virgin Islands Free Press that a COVID-19 test costs about $150.
