The most confusing thing about traveling to Europe these days is figuring out just what is expected of you before you leave on your trip and what happens should you test positive for Covid before flying home.
When we flew to France this month, some of us were told by the Delta Airlines gate agent that we had to complete a form before we departed. Others at a different check in point were told nothing. We found out France didn’t ask for any paperwork. A lot of worrying about nothing.
We spent a couple of weeks in France and abided by their rules of wearing a mask on mass transit. That included our river boat cruise in Bordeaux. After a 4 day extension in Paris, one person in our group tested positive for Covid before flying back to the United States. She remained in Paris under quarantine for 6 more days until she tested negative for Covid.
This is where the tricky part comes in. Until the requirement is lifted of a negative Covid test 24 hours before your flight is scheduled to fly to the US, make sure you bring enough prescription medicine, contacts, etc, in case you find yourself with an extended stay in Europe.
