A $5,000 Gamble

Impromptu Decision

  1. Obtain a NEGATIVE PCR test result within 72 hours of travel
  2. Obtain a NEGATIVE PCR test result five days after arriving. If this test result is positive, I must quarantine in a state-provided facility that will cost us approximately $5000. As a consequence, I will be spending Christmas in quarantine.
  3. A POSITIVE COVID result will also require my in-laws to quarantine as they are considered close contact because we just spent five days with them. This in itself is a substantial financial burden on them because their gift shop will be closed because they are in quarantine. December is their most profitable month, and being closed for almost two weeks will significantly impact their bottom line.
